The number and complexity of challenges our region faces can be overwhelming. These issues go beyond our individual communities, and no one person or group can tackle them alone. The Capital Region Collaborative builds alignment around these shared challenges and opportunities.
We are a partnership of local government, business, philanthropic, and community leaders who come together to achieve a shared vision for the Richmond Region. We’re thinking creatively about how to mobilize networks, ideas, approaches, and resources to unlock our community’s full potential.
The Regional Indicators Project launched in 2016 as a way to measure progress on economic and social goals related to our region’s shared priorities. The indicators assist community leaders, elected officials, and funders in making informed, strategic decisions to drive change. The data quantify the current state of our region, allow us to compare ourselves to similar communities, and measure progress over time.
