ICF understands the many goals embraced by community development: affordable housing, safe streets, economic opportunities, community infrastructure, access to health care, and services that meet resident needs, such as quality schools and places to work, play, and shop. We offer first-hand insight into the workings of federal and state agencies and experience and help successfully use public and private funds.
Like the communities we work with, our multidisciplinary community development staff is diverse, comprised of employees with backgrounds in public policy, finance, housing development, urban planning, public health and education, and environmental science. ICF uses our knowledge to assist community development organizations with:
- Assessing opportunities
- Analyzing risks
- Evaluating policy choices
- Designing programs
- Finding financing
- Prioritizing investments
- Defining performance measures
ICF’s technical assistance, program support, program evaluation, and comprehensive training help enhance the capacity of community development program staff to strengthen program performance, increase the impact in communities, and assure compliance. Our performance monitoring and evaluation tools allow clients to track progress against their community development goals.
