CLASP Responds to Methods and Leading Practices for Advancing Equity and Support for Underserved Communities through Government, OMB Doc. No. 2021-09109
By CLASP, the Community Partnership Group (CPG), and New Deal for Youth (ND4Y) Changemakers
One of President Biden’s first Executive Orders committed the Federal government to a comprehensive approach to promoting racial equity across Federal agencies. Following this direction, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) solicited public input related to how agencies can best partner with members of the community that have been historically underserved by--or discriminatorily excluded from--Federal anti-poverty policies and programs. OMB also asked respondents to provide any insight related to increasing coordination and engagement with community-based and civil rights organizations.
CLASP commends the Biden Administration for recognizing that racial equity must be central throughout the policymaking process and seeking out strategies to improve community engagement in anti-poverty programs. We submit this comment in response to the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) Request for Information: Methods and Leading Practices for Advancing Equity and Support for Underserved Communities through Government, OMB Doc. No. 2021-09109.
