Municipalities are increasingly turning to Public Private Partnerships as a way to leverage private,  non-profit and philanthropic  investment for public good.  Huge Ed/Med projects or anchor institutions come to mind when we think about PPPs, but the approach can cover everything from affordable housing using Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) to bike share programs and innovative financing tools.  This session highlights both practical and inventive projects and will help community leaders think outside the box for their own potential  PPPs, and considers equitable impacts in the equation.
