Establishing and publicizing clear targets and metrics of evaluation are essential components of sustained success in the community wealth building effort. Scroll down to view the major long-term goals of the initiative.

To measure progress towards achieving these goals, the City will track the following four indicators:

  • Number of persons in poverty (total and excluding college students)

  • Number of children (persons aged 17 and under) in poverty

  • The City’s overall poverty rate, as measured and reported by the U.S. Census

  • The City’s child poverty rate
