About the Center
The Center for an Urban Future (CUF) is a leading New York City-based think tank that generates smart and sustainable policies to create jobs, reduce inequality, and help lower income New Yorkers climb into the middle class.
For over 20 years, CUF has published accessible, data-driven reports detailing strategies to grow and diversify the economy and expand opportunity that are anchored in rigorous research, not preconceived notions about outcome. Our work has been a powerful catalyst for policy change in New York City and serves as an invaluable resource for government officials, community groups, nonprofit practitioners and business leaders as they advocate for and implement policies to address some of New York’s biggest challenges and opportunities.
