The National Association for County Community and Economic Development (NACCED) is excited to welcome Metopio as the latest member to join NACCED as a Platinum Associate member!
NACCED’s associate members provide valuable products and services within the affordable housing, community development and economic development industry. These members are established industry leaders, committed to promoting and enhancing the success of counties implementing the nation’s affordable housing and community development programs.
Metopio’s award-winning family of technology products provide both verified data and easy-to-use visualization tools to understand the diversity and dynamics of communities across the country – regardless of a user’s data science background.
With millions of carefully curated federal, state and local datasets down to the Census tract, government agencies, community partners and key stakeholders can use data to create meaningful maps, charts and tables that drive decision-making, align community development goals and tell effective stories to strengthen grant applications and pique the interest of investors.
“Economic development leaders have historically centered their efforts on attracting business by enticing relocation or creating financial incentives,” shared Angie Grover, Metopio’s Cofounder and Chief Operating Officer. “However, in today’s ever-changing landscape, driving prosperity for all looks different. It has expanded to include investment in existing community infrastructure as well as support for current residents who are looking for opportunity in their own backyard. Communities need timely, granular data to evaluate everything including housing, education, healthcare, childcare, and employment opportunities to find new partners and create effective plans.“
Building healthy and resilient communities is a data-driven team effort. Metopio is excited to join NACCED and partner to support member efforts to make a difference across the country.
