There are few tasks more important and more necessary in American society today than the regeneration of “weak market cities.” This paper outlines an extensive list of housing strategies for change in these cities as part of their revitalization efforts. It is intended to help CDCs, government agencies, lenders, community members, and foundations assess the effectiveness of current revitalization strategies and priorities in weak market cities; develop new, effective goals and strategies; and prioritize the allotment of resources to best achieve these goals.
