The Equitable Development Data Insight Training (EDDIT) Initiative is open to:
- Organizations (local governments, nonprofits, community groups, private organizations) working towards urban equity.
- Organizations operating in small and mid-sized cities in the U.S. or Canada (defined as having a population of approx. 50,000 to 500,000).
- Organizations should have a specific equitable development project or program that they wish to use as the focus of the training. Ideally, this project/program has been active for a minimum of 3 years and has robust data associated with it.*
*Exceptions to these requirements may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
