Search Tips

The Urban Partnerships Initiative Online Toolkit has a Search feature to assist you with locating additional specific topics addressed in the toolkit.

  • Be as precise as possible with the search terms.
  • You do not need to include "and" in the search phrase if you are searching more than one word. The search feature looks only for items that include all the words you specify.
  • To search an exact phrase, use quotation marks around it. For example, if you specify "job coaching," the search will be for that exact phrase with the words in that order. If you want search results that are less restricted, do not use quotation marks.
  • Some search terms might have more than one common spelling that could return different results. For example, if you want to search for information on child care, you might search both "child care" and "childcare."
  • For the maximum number of results, use all lowercase OR all uppercase letters in the search term. For example, "DIVERSION" or "diversion" is less specific and will produce more results than "Diversion."
  • To focus your search and eliminate results that contain a particular word or phrase, put a hyphen in front of that word. For example, if you want to search "incentives" but you do not want results for "tax incentives," search for "incentives –tax." When you include a negative term in your search, be sure to include a space before the hyphen.
