The Vibrant Communities – Cities Reducing Poverty 2020 Impact Report is our first attempt at capturing and communicating national trends in poverty reduction and the important ways in which member Cities Reducing Poverty collaboratives are contributing to those changes. This impact report is meant for poverty reduction organizers and advocates, and public decision-makers to get a sense for how collaborative, multi-sectoral local roundtables with comprehensive plans contribute to poverty reduction in their communities and beyond; and spotlights high-impact initiatives that are demonstrating promising results.
This impact report is also meant to inspire more organizations, groups and associations to track, identify and communicate their impact. That is, to describe the linkages between their activities and population-level outcomes, analyzing whether, in what ways, and how much things are changing for people living in poverty. This approach to evaluation also helps collaboratives gain a fuller understanding of how their contributions have an important role in creating healthy, vibrant communities.
