Getting Started

Getting Started: A Guide for Centering Equity in Financial Sustainability Planning takes local leaders through the process of identifying funding to support data-driven strategies with an eye toward addressing inequities in the criminal justice and behavioral health systems. The guide contains two parts that are designed to be used hand in hand: 

  1. A Planning Guide that takes leaders of local initiatives through identifying measurable goals and aligning funding to achieve those goals; and 
  2. An Investment Calculation Workbook, which assists jurisdictions in developing an initiative budget step by step, item by item.
