Community Benefits Agreement and Neighborhood Advisory Council Toolkit

As part of our Economic Equity work, we have compiled extensive resources on setting up a neighborhood advisory council and negotiating community benefits agreements. We’ve worked with our community partners to determine what the best practices are, and hope that this will be a useful tool for anyone interested in advocating for economic equity in their communities.
