About the Borough Leads

What’s a Borough Lead Organization?

The Borough Lead Organizations were chosen through a competitive process. They are charged with forming, leading, mentoring and supporting their borough coalitions. The coalitions will run programs and initiatives to address the four focus areas in ways that will work in each borough. The Borough Leads understand their boroughs’ strengths and reflect their cultural diversity. They’re here to help Partners gather data and implement evidence-based strategies in ways that work for their communities and help those who are interested in similar topics make connections and work together.
