Welcome to the website of the

Piedmont Public Policy Institute.

In 1999, John Crosland Jr., chartered the Piedmont Public Policy Institute (PPPI) as a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization. Mr. Crosland was joined by H. Allen Tate, Jr. and many other leaders of the real estate industry in the ensuing years as they directed the PPPI in its mission to conduct hard-hitting research and challenging education programs. The PPPI carries on Mr. Crosland’s and Mr. Tate’s legacy of fostering robust and informed dialogue on market-based solutions to many issues impacting the real estate industry.
