This paper uses the HomeTown Competitiveness project in Nebraska to demonstrate the role of social capital in community change. The authors use the Community Capitals Framework (CCF) to examine the existing assets and investments in seven different types of community capital (natural, cultural, human, social, political, financial, and built) and the interactions and resulting impacts among and across capitals after project implementation. Specifically, the CCF is used to understand how the flow between capitals affects community change in terms of building social capital.
