CREATE A MORE INCLUSIVE ECONOMY

The ability of the Baton Rouge Area to advance economic growth across the parishes hinges on its commitment to inclusive opportunities for all people in the region. These commitments include efforts to support the successful creation of minority- and women-owned businesses, reinvesting in its underserved communities and elevating the region’s commitment to diversity and inclusion practices in the workplace.

DISINVESTED COMMUNITIES FOCUS

The migration patterns in the Baton Rouge Area are increasing economic inequality between its parishes. Over time, the inequality can proliferate generational poverty, contribute to lower graduation rates and higher incarcerations rates, and even shorter life expectancies. Attracting $100 million of private dollars to reinvest and redevelop the Baton Rouge Area’s most underserved communities will enhance the region’s overall vibrancy while bringing greater economic opportunity to its residents. 

PROGRESS ON PRIORITIES

Under each of BRAC’s four focus areas, high-level strategic priorities were identified to achieve the large goals, then metrics of success were recommended for each priority to help track progress.
