September CHIP Update

Dear Community Partners and Key Stakeholders,

As we mentioned in August, the CHIP scorecard is very close to being complete and we cannot wait to share it with you! As a reminder, if you need access to scorecard data, information generated from our work group process so far, or other priority information, please feel free to contact us. 

As work continues to unfold around our CHIP priorities, there is a need to insure increased communication and sharing within workgroups as well as to archive information. To allow that to happen we have established a blogsite for each priority to group. You can access each blog via the links on the right-hand menu bar.

Please take a few minutes to read our Update featured sections this month to find out what you can do to share information that supports our CHIP priorities and partners.
  • This month we have 2 continuing and 1 new Engage opportunities. 
    • The City of Asheville Bond Referendum is now on the November Ballot with funding slated to critical affordable housing, transportation and recreation needs.
    • Open Streets Asheville takes place September 18th and is looking for volunteers.  We also need continued support in spreading the word and encouraging people to attend.
    • NC Child, Children First/Communities In Schools, and the Success Equation invite you to join a community discussion focused on building economic opportunity for children across North Carolina. These discussions will inform the development of a package of statewide policy solutions, the North Carolina Children’s Opportunity Agenda. 
  • In Learn you'll find training in Results Based Accountability, Tobacco Prevention Advocacy for youth and Racial Equity as well as a 3 part NY Times series on ACES. 
  • Support includes an October 9th fundraiser and learning opportunity for Buncombe County Partnership for Children entitled "What would Mr. Rogers do"?
Don't forget that our Facebook Page is where we provide more timely information.  Like our page if you haven't yet. And if you need to refer back to information from the monthly Updates you can find everything on our blog.

Newly added to our Resources You Can Use Page space is the Community Commons website data platform that supports mapping and reporting capabilities to help understand community data. 

Please let us know how we can continue to build and improve ways to communicate and share in ways that help us be successful in our work together!
