Data You Can Use   (Milwaukee)

This is the application of the nonprofit Data You Can Use (DYCU) to join NNIP and represent Milwaukee. The mission of Data You Can Use is to connect people who need data to people who have data. As a data intermediary, DYCU does not believe they must be the creators or keepers of data (although they can be), but rather that their function is to use their relationships and understanding to make connections that increase access to and use of data in improving decisions. They focus on assisting organizations and residents in low -income neighborhoods to access, understand and use data to influence policy and increase resources.
