Civic Support Enterprise

By providing publicly accessible tools to access, understand, and analyze neighborhood data, the Neighborhood Data for Social Change (NDSC) platform deepens Angelenos’ engagement with their communities to help improve local policies and programs. 

The Neighborhood Data for Social Change (NDSC) platform is proud to launch the new Civic Support Enterprise. As part of this project, we will partner with Los Angeles County housing and community development organizations to provide pro bono data support services such as rapid response research, data analyses, and custom visualization development, helping social innovators better plan and implement programs, fundraise, and communicate the impact of their work. 

Since 2017, the Neighborhood Data for Social Change (NDSC) platform has operated through generous sponsorships and philanthropic funds. With the launch of the NDSC Civic Support Enterprise, NDSC will expand its operating model to include a more expansive range of mission-driven revenue models, including philanthropic support, subsidized consultations, and market-rate fees for service. Through the NDSC Civic Support Enterprise, we will fulfill our mission to provide social innovators with the local data needed to pilot, evaluate, and scale innovative new approaches to improving quality of life in for residents across Los Angeles County.
