2019 State of the Safety Net Forums

Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the CAN Dashboard Report

The CAN Dashboard provides an overview of the socio-economic well-being of Austin and Travis County. The Dashboard reports on community conditions relating to 17 indicators in four different goal areas 1. Our Basic Needs are Met 2. We are Safe, Just and Engaged 3. We are Healthy 4. We Achieve Our Full Potential. In 2019, CAN is commemorating the 10th edition of the CAN Dashboard by hosting a series forums to assess the “State of the Safety Net” using dashboard data to asses community well-being, highlight positive outcomes and identify areas requiring further attention, analysis and action. These forums provide an opportunity for CAN staff, partners, Dashboard Steering Committee members and community members to discuss successes and challenges that our community has experienced over the last 10 years and how these relate to the challenges of today. Please register below if you would like to attend the forums that are already scheduled. Space is limited, so register early!
