About St. Louis Mosaic Project
The St. Louis Mosaic Project was launched in 2012 in response to an economic impact report identifying St. Louis as lagging in immigrant growth as well as highlighting the economic benefits of increasing the region’s foreign-born population. The Mosaic Project is a regional initiative that is professionally managed by St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, World Trade Center St. Louis and a 32-member committee. Its goal is to transform St. Louis into the fastest growing major metropolitan area for immigration by 2025, to add 25,000 more foreign born to the region from 2016-2025 and to promote regional prosperity through immigration and innovation.
