Wanted: Solutions for America (Wanted) is a national initiative to document and disseminate information about successful strategies used by communities in addressing social and economic challenges. It is a project of the Pew Partnership, a civic research organization located in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Partnership is funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts, a national philanthropy headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Wanted: Solutions for America:
- mobilizes researchers to track successful solutions to community problems
- showcases the best of research and practice to national audiences
- increases community access to practical knowledge about strategies that work
- tracks solutions in five areas crucial to community sucess:
1. healthy children and families
2. thriving neighborhoods
3. living-wage jobs
4. viable economies
5. collaborative leadership
Pew selected the Center For Urban Policy Research (CUPR) to act as the coordinating research institution for the Wanted initiative. In this capacity, CUPR facilitates efforts described above by coordinating research across 19 program sites. These program sites are geographically dispersed and implement a wide array of strategies for community development. In addition, local researchers employ a variety of research approaches. CUPR's objective is to bring an overall research strategy to the project.
