Workshop Series One:
The Context for Advancing Regional Equity

New Realities in Federal and State Funding

Since 2000, an unprecedented number of states have faced budget crises driven by recession and the continuing retreat by the federal government from supporting longstanding programs that serve low-income communities. The result has been cuts in programs and services at the state and local levels affecting education, health, social services, and transportation. In the midst of fiscal difficulties how can advocates continue to advance equity and protect vulnerable populations? Explore the prognosis for government fiscal support and its implications for communities.
