Our Work

At RPA, our planners and advocates seek to improve the prosperity, sustainability and quality of life of the New York metropolitan region through research in transportation, economic development, housing, real estate, climate change, open space, and more. We believe in harnessing the power of evidence to drive effective policy and practice.

  • Reports

    Producing world-class research since 1922, RPA has more than 400 original reports and white papers in its digital library. Our reports have guided policymakers, communities, businesses, and civic organizations in the tri-state region for nearly 100 years.
  • Campaigns

    RPA partners with communities, businesses, government and civic leaders to implement our proposals. We focus on a set of critical campaigns each year while advancing dozens of other projects. Learn more about our campaigns here.
