CRANE is a resource allocation strategy designed to encourage collaborative efforts among the multiple resource allocators, such as NIFA, Department of Economic Development, HUD, local governments, non-profits and others, and their various programs.
Resources & Participants
CRANE's objective is to shorten the distance between resources and the public, thereby substantially increasing the value of the resource by matching them to need. Resources are then allocated in a more rational and cost effective manner. This strategy is "non-traditional" and requires cross-jurisdictional cooperation. It is goal and concept driven rather than "project driven."
