Grundy has long been associated with the “Urbanist” approach to bringing vitality back to older American cities and, in 2001, convened area philanthropists and civic activists to put Urbanist principles to work in Cincinnati.  In recognition of his work in this area, he has been named Resident Urbanist at the Niehoff Urban Studio of the University of Cincinnati.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in the United Kingdom and is founder or co-founder of the Community Building Institute, the Community Research Collaborative, the Greater Cincinnati Microenterprise Initiative, place matters (a comprehensive community development initiative in five Greater Cincinnati neighborhoods), Community Investment Partners, the Greater Cincinnati Housing Alliance, and several others.
