Foundation Priority Initiatives
To deepen and spread the impact of planning across all communities, the Foundation is committed to support research, providing planners with evidence-based tools and practical solutions to help communities plan for future challenges.
Scholarships provide financial assistance to planning students, especially women, minorities, and others who are underrepresented in the planning profession. Scholarships make the planning profession more diverse and accessible to those of limited means and help to attract the best and brightest new talent.
The APA Foundation extends expert planning services, including disaster recovery and mitigation planning, to underserved, resource-limited communities in the United States and abroad through Community Planning Assistance Teams and other planning resources.
