At the Mayor's Office for Economic Opportunity, the Enterprise Data Solutions team is working on a project to collect verified service delivery locations for contracted social services. These services are funded through NYC government contracts, but are delivered by non-profits or other outside providers. The goal of this project is to compile and make public the sites where these services are delivered. Currently, service delivery location information is not consistently collected in any city-wide process. You can find information on this project here (https://www1.nyc.gov/site/opportunity/portfolio/social-service-location.page).

During the first iteration of the project, which took place in 2018, data from 6 city agencies were included. This data is available on NYC Open Data. The second iteration involves expanding this data collection to all health and human services agency partners using a web application to standardize data entry. We are hopeful that agencies will start entering data in early 2020.

Come learn about our process of collecting (through spreadsheets and a web app) and mapping (with geopandas and Tableau) these sites. Then help us brainstorm research questions, products, and other uses of this data!
