This external evaluation will use a developmental evaluation approach to asses the launch and growth of the Urban Core Collaborative (UCC). The UCC is a community-based collaborative that is working to increase the capacity of local organizations to enact systemic change throughout neighborhoods of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The evaluation will transition to an impact assessment to determine the extent to which UCC has increased the capacity of local organizations and cultivated leaders in communities of color.
