NeighborWorks Blackhawk Region is also a small business. As such, we deliver significant financial value by maintaining and building payrolls, running our own business, purchasing goods and services from other local small businesses and generating local, state and federal taxes and fees. We’re a contributor to the Stateline Area’s prosperous business environment.
During the period 2006-2011 NeighborWorks Blackhawk Region was responsible for over $24.4 million in economic activity as a result of its operations. $8.6 million of this was a direct effect (initial impact on the economy), $2.7 million an indirect effect (secondary impact caused by changing input needs of directly affected industries, e.g., building homes requires lumber, cement, and architectural services) and $13.1 million an induced effect (impact caused by household change in spending due to additional employment caused by direct and indirect affects, e.g., construction workers shop at the grocery store or buy clothing). On an annual basis, the organization sustains over 40.3 jobs.
