Propel L.A. Final Report
The economic crisis caused by COVID has revealed a number of stark truths about diminishing economic inclusion and the income divide in LA County, but before recovery planning is complete, it is important to look at the goals our region had set leading up to the crisis, and take stock of how well those strategies worked.
In a new “Final Report” published by LAEDC about the 2016-2020 Strategic Plan for LA County Economic Development, implemented as “Propel L.A.”, the past five years of data were compared to the goals that our region’s communities collaboratively created to drive desired outcomes. This look at data from 2015-2019 helps us evaluate progress before the economic shock of 2020, which is important context.
