Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls attended Ceasefire University in January, 2015 to prepare for implementation of GVI. Project Manager Katie Kudela has helped shepherd the process along as Niagara has moved closer to full implementation. The partnership completed a problem analysis in December, 2015 and began weekly advising calls in early 2016 as the city continues to shape GVI in Niagara Falls.
