The Sustainable PA Municipal Equity Toolkit (Toolkit) is designed to be a resource for Pennsylvania’s local government staff and elected officials when considering, developing, implementing and/or administering equity measures. It supports municipalities that are thinking about and/or working for an inclusive, fair, and just community in program and policy governance, administration, and outcomes.
