About Us

The Center for an Urban Future (CUF) is a leading New York City–based think tank that generates smart and sustainable public policies to reduce inequality, increase economic mobility, and grow the economy.


CUF has been shaping the local economic policy debate for more than 20 years. Known for generating data-driven solutions to pressing problems, CUF’s ideas serve to increase the city’s prosperity, advance the number of well-paying jobs, and provide low-income New Yorkers with a pathway to the middle class.


Through its distinctive research on diverse issue areas, populations, and communities across all five boroughs, CUF influences public policy that strengthens the economy for a more equitable and inclusive city for all New Yorkers.


CUF’s efforts to create a more prosperous, equitable and inclusive New York span many topics and policy areas, and are unified by three common aims:


* Growing New York City’s economy and boosting the number of middle income jobs; and

* Helping more people develop the skills and credentials needed to access careers that put them on the path to the middle class;

* Making New York City—and its many and diverse neighborhoods—a better place to live.
