Nina Bennett joined PFM’s Philadelphia office in 2014 and is a senior managing consultant in the firm’s Management and Budget Consulting practice. She serves as core staff to the National Resource Network, a first of its kind Federal initiative that provides assistance to cities seeking economic revitalization. In this capacity, Nina conducts diagnostic assessments of cities’ challenges and helps to develop customized technical assistance plans designed to catalyze revitalization. She also works on operational efficiency studies and multi-year financial plans for cities across the country. Past projects include an evaluation of possible economic ramifications related to a proposed coal export port near Bellingham, WA, and an assessment of the changing transportation-for-hire market in the City of New Orleans.

Before joining PFM, Nina worked at an economic development consulting firm, where she provided data-driven technical assistance to cities and counties throughout northern California and the Central Valley. She helped municipalities develop long-range economic development strategies, created innovative transit-oriented development plans for low-density cities, and assessed the financial feasibility of publicly-funded projects, from affordable housing to public gathering places. In 2014, the American Planning Association’s Sacramento Chapter awarded its Excellence in Economic Development and Planning Award to her downtown revitalization plan for Oroville, CA, praising the plan as both practicable and transformative.

Previously, Nina served as a Research Fellow at the University of California Berkeley’s Center for Community Innovation, where she produced evaluations of local HUD-funded housing programs and conducted research into transitioning neighborhoods during the foreclosure crisis. She also helped to launch the campaign that created a Property-Based Downtown Business Improvement District (PBID) in the City of Berkeley, CA. she began her career at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, analyzing innovative ways to redesign federally-funded programs so as to better meet the needs of rural communities.
