PORTLAND — Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) recognizes The City of Portland’s equity work in its latest brief, “Aligning Resources and Results: Increasing Equity Through the Budget.”

CSSP examines President Obama’s Proposed 2016 Budget and features Portland as a model for using the power of the budget process to address equity issues.

The brief features the City’s Budget Equity Assessment Tool, part of a process developed by the Office of Equity and Human Rights. The tool guides bureau leaders and their Budget Advisory Committees to determine how budget requests or decisions benefit and/or burden communities, specifically communities of color and people with disabilities.

“We’re excited that our equity work is being recognized on a national level,” said Dante James, Office of Equity and Human Rights director.
