Abstract:

With support and partnership from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, three national organizations – Code for America (CfA), Living Cities, and the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP) – are working with seven communities around the country to advance the frontier of civic technology and data ecosystems development. Our organizations have developed extensive ties with localities across the country over 54 collective years of working with the non-profit and public sectors. We share a commitment to harnessing the power of civic technology and data to make local governments and civic organizations more effective in meeting the pressing challenges of the 21st century.
