Reconnecting America People * Places * Possibility


Reconnecting America’s Policy Program envisions a nation where public policy at the federal, state, and local level facilitates, promotes, and supports the development of healthy and vibrant communities and regions.

RA’s Policy team analyzes current policies at all levels of government to identify those that support the creation of thriving communities, as well as those that present barriers to the development of such communities.  We recommend policy changes to support the efforts of public officials, practitioners, and other leaders to build communities which are livable, economically vibrant, and accessible to all.  We develop diverse coalitions of partners to work toward implementation of recommended policy changes through education of policymakers and other stakeholders at all levels of government.

Reconnecting America works closely on issues of federal policy with several national allies including Transportation for America, Smart Growth America and National Housing Conference
