IEDC's Equitable Economic Development Playbook Program has been made possible by The Rockefeller Foundation, The Kresge Foundation and the Surdna Foundation.
The Equitable Economic Development Playbook Initiative, launched in May 2021, aims to examine structural racism in economic development and promote equitable practices and standards, both in the post-pandemic recovery and over the long term. The multi-year project will culminate in a toolkit publication and on-the-ground technical assistance for communities to work on Equity Action Plans.
The five organizations that form part of IEDC's Equity Communities Cohort will be engaged for a year to receive technical assistance through on-the-ground visits, webinars, and cohort check-ins and create an Equity Action Plan based on their local needs and challenges.

"Ensuring economic development efforts support shared prosperity for a wide range of stakeholders must be undertaken with intentionality. IEDC is excited to begin working with our inaugural Equity Communities Cohort," says Todd Greene, IEDC Chair and Executive Director of WorkRise and Institute fellow at the Urban Institute. "Together, we will develop and implement equitable economic development ideas within these five communities. This initiative will allow us to work alongside these communities and develop strategies that promote equitable policies, practices, and standards that will inform the economic development field."
"SLDC is thrilled to be a part of the IEDC's Equity Communities Cohort. As we work on our Economic Justice Action Plan, we believe this will enhance our opportunities to create strategies to improve policies and developments in North St. Louis on an equitable basis that implement change," said Daffney Moore, SLDC's Chief of Staff.
The first edition of the Playbook was released in January 2022. An updated edition will be released that features best practices and lessons learned from the Equity Communities at the end of the technical assistance period.
