CI:Now awarded grant from the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County

Community Information Now (CI:Now)   (San Antonio)

July 2016 - June 2017


The United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County has awarded CI:Now one year of funding in the amount of $75,000. The grant funds will be used to strengthen local data capacity through freely-accessible, neutral, high-quality data that area nonprofits and others can use for data-driven decisionmaking and action, as well as “help desk” services, trainings, and technical assistance. UWSA was a founding member in the late 1990s of the Alamo Area Community Information System (AACIS), rebranded as CI:Now in 2008. For 20 consecutive years UWSA has invested in AACIS’/CINow’s work to build local data capacity, through directly funding CI:Now, by donating its fiscal agency services, and by being a champion of data-driven action.
