The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Urban NRP Funding and GIS Analysis of Powderhorn Park.

Giencke, Peter, Tami Maddio, Praveena Pidaparthi, and Annemarie Kleis.

This project used GIS to produce a series of maps to analyze various aspects of the funding from the Neighborhood Revitalization Program in the Powderhorn Park neighborhood. The project entailed comparing various attributes of residential parcels for those who did and did not receive NRP grants. Further, the study sought to determine whether or not those that received down payment grants were still in their homes and comparing this to the neighborhood as a whole. Final research questions included determining how distance affected housing value from a given grant property, and determining a quantitative measure of effectiveness for NRP grants.
