Community Action Duluth: Measuring the Return on Investment for Participant Outcomes in Three Community Action Duluth Employment Programs.

Author: 
Acharya, Nikhil.

The focus of this study was to examine the Return on Investment from Community Action Duluth Programs. The objective was to analyze the three programs; HOPE Program, Bridges to Employment and Jump Start Duluth Program. These Programs create economic value, which is easy to measure, but there are also many social impacts created, which may not be comparatively easy to measure. This report strives to identify such social impacts along with measuring the economic returns generated by these three programs. For the Analysis, a simple Return on Investment Method was used. The results of the community return of investment analysis indicate that the three programs have generated significant net benefits.
