The LISC Online Resource Library located on LISC's National web site, contains timely policy and funding announcements, in-depth information resources and distance learning opportunities for community development practitioners. Through it, we disseminate LISC’s and others’ lessons learned, and facilitate exchange among community development experts and practitioners nationwide. The Resource Library was originally launched in April 1999. A more interactive, redesigned version was launched in April 2002. The library continues to offer a growing collection of in-depth papers, templates, tools and guides on a variety of community development issues, but the sections have been reorganized to better meet user needs.
The Indicators Report provides high quality data and information about Boston drawn from the wealth of research and information generated by public agencies, civic institutions, researchers, think tanks and community-based organizations. The Boston Indicators Project is a civic initiative coordinated by the Boston Foundation in partnership with the City of Boston/Boston Redevelopment Authority and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council. Its goal is to engage the general public as well as civic and community-based institutions, the media, business and government in better understanding Boston’s key challenges and opportunities through shared access to high quality objective data.
The MetroBoston DataCommon is an online mapping tool that provides data about the region and individual towns and cities to further understanding about changes in the area. In particular, it is especially useful for residents, city planners, government officials, and members of community organizations seeking data to inform decisions, policies, and programs. Features include community snapshots of trends and current conditions for every Boston neighborhood and the ability to make custom maps based on available data. The tool came about as a result of a partnership between the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) and the Boston Indicators Project.
