(The People's Roadmap Moderator) #1

Navigation of Resources emerged as a Smarter Communities topic area at The People’s Roadmap Workshop – Queens Edition (November 9, 2017). Use this thread to continue that discussion!

Community thoughts about Current State

  • Small business - it’s all about loans, where are the grants?
  • NYC Civic Service Design Studio’s reach in the city (its new)
  • We are trying to find jobs when we can start them…
  • Problem of too many choices for advancing career or reentering workforce
  • Silo’d resources and understanding of social service opportunities
  • Subway ad campaigns for unequal pay

Community thoughts about Desired Future State

  • Resource navigation clearinghouse (w/ good UX)
  • Well designed experience to help job search
  • Small business grants!
  • Better bike lanes to encourage more green transportation
  • Program reach out to people to help them start businesses
