Equity and Community Investment (ECI) works to augment and advance the
HSD Dismantling Racism Initiative
(DRI), and to centralize and expand the Department’s community investment efforts.
ECI seeks to normalize, operationalize, and institutionalize the DRI’s multilayered efforts and instill them across all
HSD divisions. Additionally, we collaborate with agencies and community partners to align and coordinate racial equity efforts across the county.
ECI embeds equity in internal and external funding opportunities and in partnership development as it centralizes and coordinates community investment commitments and activities across divisions and the community. These include HSD’s granting functions, external grant application activities, nonprofit capacity building and technical assistance, community engagement and the Department’s University Student Practicum Program.
