Launched in 2003 when Louisville Metro Government was formed, the Greater Louisville Project was created to collect and leverage data to make our community better. Over time, we have measured four deep drivers in our community: Health, Jobs, Education, and Quality of Place. Our data has been used by philanthropies, nonprofits, government offices, and the private sector to track our progress against our community’s goals.

In 2020, in response to the killing of Breonna Taylor, leaders in Louisville’s Black community partnered to create a document outlining a holistic approach to what Black communities across this country need for systemic restructuring. The document, entitled A Path Forward categorizes the changes into 5 areas: Jobs, justice, education, health, and housing.
