In 2019, NACo established the Economic Mobility Leadership Network of county leaders to engage on these issues, assess the current barriers to mobility and share scalable and transferable programs across the country. Network members attended interactive convenings in Multnomah County, Ore., Hennepin County, Minn. and Garrett County, Md. to learn about the economic barriers faced in each community and how they are being addressed.
Convening throughout 2019, the Network established leader engagement and procedures for exchange that will continue to inform and structure future research and programming on economic mobility. This report highlights the Network membership and the convenings, peer learning opportunities and key data analysis they explored in 2019 and what is to come in the next phase of the project.Standard
