In the MetroWest region outside Boston, a community foundation is using CGR’s community indicator data to drive innovative grantmaking in its quest to increase racial equity.
The Foundation for MetroWest is partnering with MassBay Community College to provide new supports to Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) students that will address racial disparities in wealth and workforce by providing pathways to financial security. Read Foundation Executive Director Jay Kim’s viewpoint, co-authored with Mass Bay President David Podell.
CGR provides the data and analysis for Impact MetroWest, one of more than dozen community indicator websites created by CGR over the last 15 years. For more information, contact Patrick Smith, director of business development, or visit our website.
CGR is working with staff in the Department of Emergency Services to disseminate the findings and encourage implementation at the County and local municipal level.
