Project Description

Community Advancement Network is a partnership of government, non-profit, private and faith-based organizations who work together to enhance the social, health, educational and economic well-being of Central Texas. CAN provides a unique, collaborative forum to enhance awareness of issues, strengthen partnerships, connect efforts across issue areas, and facilitate development of collaborative strategies. CAN has created a dashboard of 17 socio-economic indicators which provide an overview of the social health and well-being of Austin and Travis County. By tracking the indicators in this report over time, we identify areas where collective attention and action are needed.
