Impact DuPage brings a wealth of information to one, accessible, user-friendly location. The intent is to give the community the tools needed to understand indicators that affect the quality of DuPage County residents’ lives. The data is updated whenever source data is available providing the most up-to-date information of its kind.
Data from the Forces of Change Assessment, Landscape Review, Local System Assessment, and Community Profile were used to identify strategic issues that must be addressed in order for Impact DuPage to achieve its vision of “creating a common understanding of community needs, gaps, and priorities that will advance the well-being of the DuPage County community.”
One such priority issue is Affordable Housing. The Affordable Housing workgroup, a small group of housing stakeholders, developed the Affordable Housing Action Plan. The workgroup also secured local technical assistance from the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. This assistance, anticipated to last 12-18 months beginning in January 2016, will drive the data collection and alignment objectives which can be found outlined in the action plan found at Impact DuPage Priority Issue: Affordable Housing.
