Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (University of Minnesota)

University of Minnesota’s Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) aims to connect the resources of the University of Minnesota with the interests and needs of urban communities and the broader region.  To do so, CURA focuses on collaborating with communities and agencies to define and address their research and technical assistance needs, fostering and supporting applied research projects, disseminating research results, and convening public events to discuss key issues, explore policy alternatives, and identify new research opportunities.  It also runs several small grant programs, such as its Artist Neighborhood Partnership Initiative, which provides grants to artists working to foster more equitable communities in the Twin Cities.
