The Center for Urban Policy Research (CUPR) specializes in housing, land use, economic development, and urban-poverty issues. It is concerned with both the academic quality of urban research and the practical application of research results to policy formulation and implementation. CUPR conducts research for federal agencies, major private foundations, and state and local governments. Its faculty hold joint appointments in the sociology, economics, geography, urban planning and policy development, and urban studies departments. Major projects include housing studies for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; a Community Outreach Partnership Center in Newark (also for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development); an evaluation of New Brunswick's Hope VI program; program evaluations for the U.S. Economic Development Administration; costs of sprawl studies for several states; and costs and benefits of historic preservation for federal and state agencies and major foundations. In other work, CUPR's Rutgers Economic Advisory Service (R/ECON) prepares economic forecasts and analyses for businesses and governments, and its Project Community provides direct services and technical assistance to community-based organizations and nonprofit groups engaged in neighborhood revitalization. The center publishes a quarterly newsletter; monographs and working papers are published through the CUPR Press.
