History

Weld County’s community health improvement plan dashboard was initiated with a grant from Weld County Government. In 2013, a vendor was chosen with initial training and transfer of information to its electronic format occurring shortly thereafter. A number of dashboard-related milestones occurred in 2014.

In March 2014, the first public-facing components of the Thriving Weld Dashboard were launched in partnership with the Make TODAY Count! Campaign at maketodaycount.org. Also in March 2014, a Community Impact Coordinator was hired by the North Colorado Health Alliance to assist partners and leaders in using the dashboard.

Since then, more than 40 partner scorecards have been developed. In 2015, the Thriving Weld website was launched to house the public facing pages of the dashboard and other information related to community health initiatives. Also, the United Way of Weld County announced it would enhance its community funding program by incorporating the use of the dashboard for reporting progress in 2015 and beyond.
