Inclusive Growth Toolkit Webinar: Finding the Right Policy Tools for Your Community

April 24, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC-8




Join GARE and Grounded Solutions for an Inclusive Growth Toolkit Webinar! 

WHEN: Tuesday 24 April 2018, 02:00 PM – 03:00 PM EST


How can communities best advance racial equity through housing policies? Grounded Solutions Network’s inclusive growth toolkit helps communities understand housing policies available to promote economic and racial equity and the approaches that work best for their local context. Hear how leaders in the field have implemented housing policies, including policies from the inclusive growth toolkit, which advance racial equity in their communities. This event is jointly presented by Grounded Solutions Network and the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE).
