Insight RegionTM

The Center for Community Research at the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia

COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia
The Insight Region™ Center for Community Research is a growing hub for reliable, well-researched, and actionable data and analyses on issues critical to Northern Virginia. Through this work, we seek to inform charitable giving, inspire civic and social action, and foster a more inclusive, prosperous region.

In 2021, Insight Region will focus on understanding and promoting Inclusive Prosperity – increasing self-sufficiency, expanding economic opportunity, and forging pathways for long-term movements out of poverty for all of Northern Virginia’s residents.

We will be adding content regularly as we build out this community resource, including new research briefs and reports, data through a revised Opportunity Index, and an updated news feed to share data, research, and insights produced by the Community Foundation and our research partners on issues relevant to the region.
