MacArthur New Communities Program Report

(Inactive) Metropolitan Chicago Information Center   (Chicago)

May 2011

Completed year 2 of a 4 year grant to report on the changes in the communities covered in the New Communities Programs.  Gathered data, performed quality control checks, and formatted data for analysis by the NCP team.  Researched alternative or additional measures for monitoring change.  We provided data and technical support to MDRC.  We also worked on crime analysis and changed therein in the selected community areas.  

This year, MCIC will begin to provide technical assistance and/or training to the agencies that lead the New Communities Program work on the ground in order to expand the usefulness of the data which MCIC collects
