Nonprofit Real Estate Development Toolkit: Stable, Affordable Space for Manufacturing

Report  |  May 31, 2014

This toolkit is meant to help manufactures and developers understand each other so they can better identify and pursue opportunities to work together. The toolkit also aims to inform state, local, and federal government actors on the particular challenges that urban manufacturers face in securing the space they need. Lastly, it promotes the development of policy and financing tools that can lower some of the barriers to nonprofit industrial development that now impede the growth of vibrant, diverse, and stable industrial communities.
