The Shared Prosperity Partnership is excited to announce a new speaker series Spending for Equity: How the American Rescue Plan Act and other federal funds can support inclusive economies, launching September 23. This monthly webinar series will feature:
Expert analysis of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and other federal spending bills and regulations that could fuel a significant change in how cities pursue economic development goals.
Stories and strategies from local leaders who are using federal dollars to create more inclusive economies.
Open discussions amongst practitioners looking for smart, practical guidance to shape the flow of federal funds.
The first discussion in the series features Lourdes German, an expert on municipal finance, speaking about how cities are meeting ARPA’s equity requirements.
