Lincoln Institute

A leading resource for policy makers and practitioners, the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy addresses issues involving the use, regulation, and taxation of land.

The Lincoln Institute seeks to improve the dialogue about urban development, the built environment, and tax policy in the United States and abroad. Through research, training, conferences, demonstration projects, publications, and multimedia, the Lincoln Institute provides the highest quality, nonpartisan analysis and evaluation for today’s regulatory, planning, and policy decisions.

The Lincoln Institute was established in 1974 by the board of directors of the Lincoln Foundation, which had been founded in Phoenix in 1946 by John C. Lincoln, an industrialist originally from Cleveland. Lincoln became interested in land policy through the ideas expressed by Henry George, author of Progress and Poverty (1879). Today, the Institute has become a leading international research organization—facilitating analysis and discussion of land use and taxation issues. The Institute brings together scholars, practitioners, public officials, policy advisers, journalists, and involved citizens to share information and improve the quality of public debate.

The work of the Lincoln Institute is organized into three areas of study:

- Planning and Urban Form
– Valuation and Taxation
– International Studies.
