Equity & Engagement


All individuals, regardless of ability, and communities within the region will have full and equal access to the opportunities that enable them to attain their full potential. Decision making and the implementation of solutions in the region will be done in a way that ensure that all of the region’s residents have an opportunity to participate in the process, implementation and evaluation.

Committee Meetings

Equity & Engagement Committee meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 2:30-4 pm.

*NOTE: At this time, all Heartland 2050 Committee Meetings are scheduled to be held virtually throughout 2021.

Please email lheilman@mapacog.org to join the committee and/or receive the calendar invite with virtual meeting link.
