In Spring 2016, the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP) and Microsoft’s Civic Technology Engagement Group launched a project to explore and expand community training on data and technology for government and nonprofit staff members. The project included a survey of NNIP partners and other organizations on how they provide in-person training on data and technology for audiences who work professionally or personally to serve the community and improve neighborhood conditions. The survey provided information from 32 respondents on 54 trainings.

This fact sheet summarizes the trainings’ goals, audiences, and delivery method. Overall, these trainings illustrated the wide range of training offered to improve literacy in data and technology across the country.
