Abstract

The Greater Boston Urban Resources Partnership (GB-URP) aims to help disadvantaged communities in the Boston area improve their quality of life by funding environment-based projects. The goal of this project was to give the GB-URP the tools for cataloging existing projects and evaluating the distribution of urban natural resource grant money. A database was constructed to hold pertinent information and maps were created to analyze grant distribution. Our primary finding is that GB-URP has largely succeeded in targeting the neighborhood it seeks to help.
