NORWALK, CT -- Examining regional demographics, economic opportunity, education, health, quality of life, and happiness, Fairfield County Community Wellbeing Index 2016 was released by DataHaven, Fairfield County’s Community Foundation and a team of leaders from regional hospitals, foundations, government agencies, and community organizations.
The Early Childhood Funder Collaborative, a project of the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy, developed this report for the purpose of developing recommendations for an infrastructure connecting state child-serving agencies with local communities and communities with each other.
The third edition of Metro Hartford Progress Points, driven by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving, is the result of collaboration between nine stakeholders representing local government, businesses, nonprofits, academic and philanthropic institutions and organizations committed to making long-term progress in our region. The report includes a timeline of past efforts aimed at addressing the region’s long-standing challenges, not to be disheartening, but instead to highlight where positive changes have been made and how our region remains committed to learning from our collective past while working to create opportunities for all Greater Hartford residents.
The Urban League has now completed its latest edition of State of Black Hartford 2016, thanks to a $36,000 grant from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
