Turnkey data insights and engagement tools to help
Small Communities Make Big Decisions
Uncover local drivers of livability and confidently take action to sustain a thriving community.
Small communities often have fewer resources making it difficult to quantify insights to govern strategically.
Local leaders know their community deeply, but it has seemed impossible to access quality data and representative input. It can feel like:
Data-driven decisions require analytical staff you can't afford.
It's hard to turn community input into actionable measures.
You wish you had more data to strengthen rationale for your decisions.
Planning and budgeting for an unknown future is challenging.
The growing urban-rural divide makes external resources harder to obtain.
Siloed information makes compiling data for grant funding more difficult.
Get instant access to quality data and accurate input so you can improve decision-making.
