Summary :

Local communities need new ways to offer people employment, and to pay for local services like education,child care, health care, waste management, fireand police protection, infrastructure, and administration.

They have unmet needs in the community for these services, and at the same time there are underutilized resources available that could fill the gaps. The main barrier to matching the unmet needs with the underutilized resources is a lack of money.

This workbook will show local leaders how to take the matter of money into their own hands.
