America's Tomorrow: Equity is the Superior Growth Model

Description:

PolicyLink developed the document "America's Tomorrow: Equity is the Superior Growth Model" which describes a vision of a new economic growth model that is driven by equity. The document discusses strategies for building a stronger, more equitable economy that addresses economic achievement gaps and disparities, recognizes shifting demographics in the United States, and propels economic growth.

While it does not provide specific information about health in all policies (HiAP), it provides strategies for addressing poverty, a key social determinant of health.

Local jurisdictions can use the information contained in this document when working across sectors to implement HiAP and promote economic vitality.
