We’ve formed an Equity and Housing Advisory Group with leaders from government, community, finance, philanthropy and real estate development sectors. This group will provide direction to the project team as priorities and recommendations are developed and vetted.
This advisory group will help us advance our commitment to race and social equity in all aspects of the project, from decision-making and community engagement, to addressing racial disparities in displacement and fair housing.
This group will provide direction on community engagement strategies so the process is informed by the priorities of low-income households and communities of color. This includes how to disburse grants for community engagement.
Through a Community Grants Program, we’ll fund community-based organizations that serve low-income households, communities of color and/or marginalized communities. This will allow them to participate in the development of the strategy through the advisory group and directly engage those communities in the project.
