In November 2014, Rhode Island voters approved a Creative & Cultural Economy Initiative. The Initiative involved a FY2015-FY2018 investment and distribution of $35M in funding awards to improve cultural infrastructure throughout the state. To track the return on this investment, a team of Rhode Island college and university-based researchers will be commissioned to explore the impact of this initiative. The research team will explore the initiative by addressing three priorities: economic return, programmatic return and quality of life return.
