What is a pilot project?

Open Referral is led by local pilot projects in which stakeholders take action towards establishing accessible, interoperable and reliable community resource directory data.  Pilots commit to using Open Referral’s specifications and tools to exchange resource directory data among institutions — and in return, their feedback is prioritized in shaping the iteration of our data model, tools, and processes. One way or another, the goals of pilot projects typically involve short-term demonstration of the feasibility and value of  standardized, open resource  data exchange, and also development of strategies for long-term sustainability thereof.
