Equity is spelled on a puzzle piece

UC Center Sacramento is pleased to announce the Equity Framework Advancement Award. This $15,000 grant will be awarded on a competitive basis to a graduate student and faculty mentor who are interested in developing a White Paper on incorporating the concept of equity into the legislative bill analysis process.

  2. Perform a thorough review of approaches for incorporating equity into bill analysis at the local, state, and federal levels
  3. Propose an evidence-based framework for assessing equity-related impacts of legislative bills in California
