ACT Rochester

A joint venture of the Rochester Area Community Foundation and United Way of Greater Rochester NY, this web-based ACT Community Profile encompasses 10 topics and more than 130 indicators measuring the community’s status in areas ranging from prenatal care for developing babies to affordable housing to the change in the number of jobs in the region. The goal is to draw attention to critical needs, facilitate community dialogue and encourage strategic focus on solutions by community leaders in the 9-county Rochester region. CGR provided data, charts and analysis for the project, including a summary of trends for each topic and a report on progress in each county and the overall region. CGR enhanced the website in 2013 to improve its overall look and functionality and to add information for Seneca and Yates counties.
