Data-Driven Decision Making

View the 2014/2015 D3 Class Press Release
Contrary to common perceptions of North Texas’ relatively high income levels, the region’s poverty is worse than the national average.  Not only does financial insecurity destabilize families, it also jeopardizes the long-term vitality of cities and local economies. To further support the community in addressing the findings of the CFED Assets & Opportunities Profile, CFT announces the Data Driven Decision-Making (D3) Institute.

The D3 Institute is designed to provide organizations that offer programs and services for low-income working families the power to accelerate their development of enduring solutions to the social and economic problems facing this population.  The Institute is a unique opportunity for organizations to:

  • develop a shared understanding of the current issues and areas of need for the working poor based on currently available data
  • implement and/or expand use of data as part of program development and in strategic decision-making
  • expand network of resources and support, including sharing best practices through participation in a learning community
