More than 90 federal agencies released their first-ever equity action plans on Thursday, laying out more than 300 strategies to better help underserved communities.
This follows an executive order President Biden issued on day one of his administration, which directed agencies to conduct equity assessments of their top three to five high-impact services for Americans to determine where there were systematic barriers. These findings helped agencies develop their plans.
