Agenda 360 receives grant
Agenda 360, the regional action plan led by the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, has received a $70,000 grant from The Greater Cincinnati Foundation.
The grant will help build Agenda 360’s capacity to lead the transformation called for in the agenda. Agenda 360’s long-term goal is to make Cincinnati USA a top region for talent, jobs and economic opportunity by 2020. The Greater Cincinnati Foundation has supported the agenda from its earliest planning stages through leadership and funding.
"The Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s continuing support of the work of Agenda 360 is validation of the importance of the strategies and initiatives we’ve identified to move the region forward over time,” said Mary Stagaman, executive director of Agenda 360.
Shaped by more than 8,000 local voices, Agenda 360’s primary goals are to attract and retain talented workers, grow new jobs and retain existing ones, and provide economic opportunity and a good quality of life for all who call the region home.
Agenda 360 achieves its goals by focusing on initiatives and programs in six priority areas: business growth, qualified workforce, transportation, inclusion, government collaboration and quality place.
