All of these will be available in workshops at the Congress of Cities. They are are all also available on the NLC website,, on the City Practice Resources page.

NLC has also initiated a new publications series, the City Practice Briefs

These are each two or four pages and provide a selection of city practices and programs on specific topics to assist municipal officials. Each brief provides a summary of programs along with contact information and is designed to facilitate networking.

Currently available briefs include:
