Resilient equitable development is a priority area of focus for the Convergence Partnership. Equitable development is an approach to creating healthy, vibrant communities of opportunity. It involves promoting affordable housing without displacement, supporting inclusive transit-oriented development, creating expanded economic opportunity, and prioritizing health and prevention for communities, particularly in the context of a changing climate.
The Partnership prioritizes:
- sustaining, strengthening, and stimulating healthy, sustainable, and equitable transportation policy;
- forging new connections to and within the community economic development field; and
- promoting community economic development strategies to advance community health and equity.
