What’s on the horizon: Using State and Federal Funds to Build Back Better – Event Video and Recap

The charge is clear, we as a community need to not only recover but build back better. To do that we, need to be in position to use Federal and State resources that ensures equity. With trillions of dollars already approved or proposed, we need to seize this moment and respond in a way that ensures racial equity and economic opportunity for all.

These funds allow us to act in unprecedented ways. For example, some economist project that if done right, these resources can cut child poverty in half.

We held an virtual community meeting on  May 27th  to learn about the Federal American Rescue Plan ($1.9 trillion covid relief bill), American Families Plan and the proposed American Jobs Plan ($2.65 trillion infrastructure plan) as well as the CA State budget.
