Abstract and Keywords
This article examines the evolution of the role of community economic development (CED) in urban planning. It provides an overview of the economic context that has forced the launch and growth of CED, and describes the practices at the heart of today's CED, including the core toolkit for planners entering the subfield. The article argues that to support a metropolitan CED, the federal government will need to revisit the poverty-based funding criteria it uses for many of its programs and develop a set of place characteristics related to economic security more broadly.
