Our work is grounded in four core values: Equity, Sustainability, Local Knowledge, and Diverse Economy.

Established in 1963, the Pratt Center for Community Development works for a more sustainable and equitable New York City in partnership with community-based organizations, small businesses, and policymakers. As part of Pratt Institute, we use urban planning, architecture, and public policy to support community-based organizations in their efforts to improve quality of life, create economic opportunity, and advance sustainable development.
