National Innovation Service (NIS) released on December 8 a series of Equity-Based Decision-Making Assessments as part of the Framework for an Equitable COVID-19 Homelessness Response (see Memo, 6/15). The assessments build upon the Framework and cover three core functions of the homelessness services system: policy decisions and strategy, business operations, and hiring operations.
Under each function is a number of short assessments that service providers can use to help evaluate and improve equity practices. The assessments are designed so that service providers can use a recent policy or decision as a reference point and offers recommendations on how future decisions might better incorporate an equity lens.
