Focus Areas

Health Equity

Mt. Auburn is working to advance health equity through our consulting services to nonprofits, philanthropies, and other organizations focused on addressing the root causes that produce health inequities.

Community Resilience

Mt. Auburn has worked with communities and regions recovering from crises, including natural disasters related to climate change and man-made disasters, helping them develop strategies that foster short-term recovery and long-term economic growth.

Creative Economies

Mt. Auburn Associates has a long history of conducting creative economy assessments of various regions or states across the United States to quantify the creative sector's contribution, help communities build on their creative assets, and further their cultural development agendas.

Inclusive Growth and Small Business Development

Mt. Auburn Associates offers deep expertise in understanding the needs of the diverse small business community and developing targeted strategies to ensure that small business owners have access to the resources critical to their growth and continued success. We believe that the health and vitality of small businesses are critical to the economic well-being of every community.

Workforce Development and Economic Mobility

Over the last 35 years, Mt. Auburn has been reaching out to employers as part of its large portfolio of workforce evaluations. We collaborate with our clients in evaluating existing programs and developing workforce strategies to advance economic mobility for workers who face barriers to employment. These workers have long been disproportionately people of color.

Community Investment and Affordable Housing

We believe and data confirm that access to stable, affordable housing can lead to better health and education outcomes and increased earning potential.
