Sharpening the Focus on Social Equity to Make Strategic Budget Decisions
Includes a Live Event on 06/11/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
How can local governments address social inequities during a period of significant fiscal stress and uncertainty? The local government budget is a reflection of the needs and priorities of all stakeholders and involves difficult decisions about programs and services that may have to be cut or reinvented. Many believe that addressing social inequities through the budget process is key to leading a strong, strategic and successful economic and public health recovery.
Join this session to learn more about key factors, best practices, and tools for maintaining and improving equity as a piece of your budget strategy.
