Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance


About: The Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance-Jacob France Institute at the University of Baltimore (known as BNIA-JFI) is a nonprofit organization whose core mission is to provide open access to meaningful, reliable, and actionable data about, and for, the City of Baltimore and its communities. BNIA-JFI builds on and coordinates the related work of citywide nonprofit organizations, city and state government agencies, neighborhoods, foundations, businesses, and universities to support and strengthen the principle and practice of well informed decision making for change toward strong neighborhoods, improved quality of life, and a thriving city.

BNIA-JFI is also a partner member of the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership of the Urban Institute (NNIP).  NNIP is a collaborative effort by the Urban Institute and nearly 40 local partners to further the development and use of neighborhood-level information systems in local policymaking and community building.
