Civic Support Enterprise

Through our Civic Support Enterprise, the NDSC Team provides pro bono data support services such as rapid response research, data analyses, and custom visualizations to local community partners. The Civic Support Enterprise allows partners to use the resources available on NDSC in deeper and more expansive ways to better plan and implement programs, fundraise, and communicate the impact of their work.

If you or your agency are interested in receiving support from the NDSC Civic Support Enterprise, please contact NDSC Systems & Data Manager Elly Schoen at to learn more. We look forward to working with new and existing partners to find innovative ways to use data to advocate for a better quality of life in our communities.

Featured Project

South LA All In: Community Development Index

Launched in late 2023, South LA All In (SLAAI) is a coalition-driven, anti-poverty initiative designed to address longstanding racial and socioeconomic inequities in South Los Angeles. Anchored by the Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD) in collaboration with a with a diverse cross-sector of public, private and community partners, SLAAI’s mission is twofold:

1. Ensure a just and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, recognizing South LA’s unique vulnerabilities and the disproportionate impact of the crisis.

2. Empower residents and local businesses to benefit from the influx of investment and development destined for Los Angeles as we prepare to host the 2028 Olympics.

As part of this effort, CRCD partnered with NDSC to create a user-friendly tool that community stakeholders and leaders could utilize to generate increased investment in South LA and other historically under-served communities.
