Accounting for the Costs of Equitable Community Engagement

The following resources and case studies provide examples of how practitioners paid for and used community engagement processes while building the economy.

Lessons Learned

  • Effective engagement processes require dedicated funds that can be used in ways that support procedural equity (e.g., providing food and childcare).
  • Running meaningful engagement meetings may require an accessible location for the community, stipends for community members, food and drinks at the sessions, childcare, and interpreters. These and other expenses support participation and create an environment for equitable engagement.
  • Accountability requires funding for sustained engagement processes throughout the planning and implementation phases.
