ABOUT ILI
Out of an architect's commitment to making better healthier and equitable places the Institute for Local Innovations (ILI) was founded in 2012 as a 501c3 tax exempt organization. ILI exists to build capacities, capture and transfer knowledge, and lift up innovations in community development. ILI serves as a catalyst for positive change in low-wealth communities within the United States – whether urban, suburban, or rural – by mobilizing organizations and community development experts to build economically and socially healthier communities.
