The Forsyth Story: A Strategy for Creating a More Inclusive Economy
In the summer of 2017, the KBR Trust engaged ncIMPACT to give advice on developing an overall strategy for its Local Impact Funding. The questions to resolve included the connections between Great Expectations and other Local Impact Funding, the root causes that contribute to Forsyth’s experience with poverty and other socioeconomic conditions, and how the Trust’s focus should change to address these causes.
The ncIMPACT team analyzed demographic data, the results of an electronic survey of Forsyth residents and workers, and comments recorded during interviews and focus groups to distill the county’s present challenges.
