We Do Data.

The art and science of data-informed decision making.

The Data Innovation Project partners with organizations to increase their capacity to utilize data to clearly define their work, achieve results, and demonstrate impact in Maine. We believe in helping and empowering Maine organizations to use data to affect change and tell compelling stories.

We’re Launching a New Program!


The DIP Community Research Assistantship


This exciting new program will place DIP-trained graduate research assistants from the University of Southern Maine in community organizations to support their applied research and evaluation efforts.

As a new nonprofit organization, we found our consultation with the Data Innovation Project (DIP) to be invaluable. Together, we collaborated to maximize the impact of our data collection and brainstorm ways to creatively convey our story in order to demonstrate program effectiveness. With its highly capable, professional team, DIP served as a unique resource for our organization, helping us to increase our visibility and credibility.
