These projects focus on neighborhood planning and project implementation. Following an introduction, the sections are: (1) "Building Neighborhood Capacity"; (2) "Building Academic Capacity"; (3) "Special Projects"; and (4) "Lessons Learned about NPCR." An appendix lists NCPR projects completed from 1993 through 1998. (SLD)
