About the GLP
The Greater Louisville Project is an independent, non-partisan civic initiative supported by a consortium of philanthropic funders. Launched in 2003, the Greater Louisville Project was created to support the merged government of Louisville Metro. At that time, the Project commissioned the Brookings Institution report entitled “Beyond Merger: A Competitive Vision for the Regional City of Louisville” which identified our strengths and weaknesses compared to other cities and charted a course for long-term progress.
In support of this civic agenda, The GLP publishes data, research, and information related to our Deep Drivers through its Competitive City Reports, helping to connect the dots between education, jobs, health, and quality of place. Since its launch, GLP has released numerous annual and special reports, regularly convenes attendees from civic organizations and the broader community, and continues to serve as the credible source of data that brings focus and understanding to advancing a competitive city.
The Greater Louisville Project is fiscally sponsored by the Community Foundation of Louisville, Inc., a 501(c)(3) public charity.
