To create a more inclusive economy in Broward County, a Community Action Plan was created that promotes policies and best practices that can remove barriers preventing residents from reaching their ultimate potential.
The Community Action Plan focuses on some of the biggest barriers identified by residents, employers, and service providers.
These include (1) the difficulty of navigating the system of care and knowing about all the resources our partners have to offer. (2) Facing a system where residents are discouraged from pursuing higher wages because of the loss in benefits. (3) The need for living wage jobs that have a low barrier to entry. (4) Helping employers attract more talent by rethinking HR practices. (5) The need for standards, guidelines, and accountability mechanisms among partners to improve community outreach and services. (6) Make basic needs readily available and accessible to residents.
