MAPA’s Equity Assessment


In June 2020, the MAPA Board of Directors adopted an Equity Resolution in order to increase equitable outcomes in our region through MAPA’s work. This resolution reaffirms the agency’s commitment to an equitable and just region, and ensures that the issues of disparities, justice and racism are at the forefront as we work to do more with greater intensity and focus to realize the goal of expanding true opportunity to all residents.

MAPA’s equity assessment is a direct outcome of the resolution, and scores MAPA’s work in each of the eight action items included in the resolution. Per the equity resolution, an equity assessment will be completed on an annual basis at the end of every fiscal year. The first assessment was presented to the Board of Directors in July 2021.
