Racial Equity Municipal Action Plan (REMAP) Program

Many of us have been reflecting on ways that municipalities can advance racial equity. To help, MAPC will be offering technical assistance and regional guidance to cities and towns in our region through the Racial Equity Municipal Action Plan (REMAP) program.

The program is a collaboration with our partners at the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston (FRBB). Selected municipalities will receive technical assistance to create racial equity action plans and to take meaningful action to advance racial equity.
