What we do
Community Data: Empowering the community. CRP collects, analyzes, and makes available original and secondary data to enhance understanding of community conditions, trends, resources, and needs. This information supports planning and implementation by funders, program providers, and residents.
Research and Evaluation: Discovering what is to inform what could be. CRP designs and conducts program evaluation and applied research that address local, state, and national programs and issues, builds the knowledgebase in critical areas, and measures the impact of program investment.
