Community Partners Leading Change

The Greater Louisville Project’s mission is to provide data and research in an effort to catalyze action and engage the community. There are numerous groups across our community leading action on the three Deep Drivers of Change and working to advance a more competitive city. For each Deep Driver, one or two groups are listed — not to represent a comprehensive list, but to highlight the groups that are leading the collaborative efforts of many partner organizations.

Digging Deeper Into the Data

The Greater Louisville Project shares data and research around these indicators at the community level, relative to our peer cities. Partner organizations track and report data to the community at a neighborhood or school level. Links to these community reports are provided for those that may want to dig deeper on any particular issue.
