Boone Impact Group Taxonomy of Services
The Boone Impact Group Taxonomy of Services opens in a new window was created by Boone County Community Services Department, City of Columbia/Boone County Department of Public Health and Human Services, City of Columbia Community Development Department, and Heart of Missouri United Way.
The taxonomy provides service categories that identify the type of services provided to individuals living in Boone County. The purpose of the taxonomy is to have a universal language for services being provided among organizations receiving funding from the sources mentioned previously. Funding proposals will require using the taxonomy of services to identify what services will be provided. The programs will be individualized within proposal narratives, proposed outcomes, indicators, and method of measurements.
Boone Indicators Dashboard
The Boone Indicators Dashboard (BID) is a collaboration effort between BIG, data experts, and the University of Missouri Office of Social and Economic Data Analysis (OSEDA). OSEDA has been contracted to collect the most reliable data sources regarding populations and issues of Boone County residents. The purpose of the BID project is to provide visualized information tools -community indicators- to be easily accessed by diverse community stakeholders who currently require higher data capacity to more effectively inform and align community planning, resource investment, and performance management and monitoring.
BID views this work to be a foundational building block that will establish core capacities for collective impact. Emergent collective impact process evaluations show that every backbone function necessary to drive progress hinges on the partners’ ability to use data to develop a common agenda, inform and scale up strategy alignment, and to leverage sustainable investments.
Boone Impact Group partners utilize a web-based funding management system, Apricot by Social Solutions, through which proposals for community-based funding must be submitted. These instructions opens in a new windoware intended to assist organizations in submitting proposals in response to Requests for Proposals (RFPs) issued by the County, City, and Heart of Missouri United Way.
