During a recent interview with SPRC, Sarah Brummett shared how Colorado’s publicly available data dashboard has increased the state’s and local partners’ ability to acquire funding.
----"[Our visual data mapping tool] has been very helpful for our federal
----funders who want to be able to see, in a very visual way, what the issue
----looks like in a community....I think that’s been really helpful for us in
----terms of drawing down funding and being able to tell the story. We’ve
----also heard that it’s been really helpful for our local partners to…draw
----down foundation and private dollars [for] their suicide prevention
----efforts…because of that data."
