Overview

Public sector orientations to planning, community and social development, or local economic development often overlook the money end of the project and focus almost exclusively on the social good. Unfortunately, plans do not materialize without money.

This book takes a 'hands-on" approach as it guides the reader through the steps of securing the funds necessary to meet community needs for cost effective services and facilities. It examines the fundamentals of financing local economic development from the perspectives of both the private and public sector. It shows how to link public community funding and private marketplace funding and describes how private development can incorporate community programs as an asset to a development project or programs. Reader-friendly, the book includes numerous examples, eight real world cases, a glossary of terms, and a model local economic development business plan.
