Achieving prosperity for all Hoosiers lies within the work of our members to help meet basic needs, preserve and expand affordable housing, and connect individuals and families to education, employment, and economic opportunity. The success of those efforts requires the support of strong, innovative policies that help build a society where all persons have access to economic and social opportunity.
Prosperity Indiana works closely with policymakers to launch programs and advance policies to ensure that persons of all ages, races, abilities, and income levels are included in the economic mainstream and live in sustainable communities. We advocate for priorities to address those challenges by lobbying policymakers, mobilizing members, facilitating discussions between state departments and local governments and organizations, and connecting members with information and advocacy opportunities.
2022 Policy Agenda:
Rebuilding Stronger, More Equitable Indiana Communities
As COVID-19 moves into its third year, the pandemic continues to have unequal effects on Hoosiers, their communities, and the organizations who have been serving them on the frontlines. Prosperity Indiana’s 2022 policy agenda focuses on federal, state, and administrative opportunities to rebuild stronger, more equitable Indiana communities by prioritizing recovery for the hardest-hit Hoosiers; strengthening the infrastructure of resources for the state’s community economic development sector; and permanently improving the lives of Hoosiers long neglected by public policies.
For 2022, Prosperity Indiana’s members believe these are the most urgent priorities to advance an equitable recovery that reaches all Hoosiers and their communities:
Urgent Policy Priorities
In addition to these urgent recovery priorities, Prosperity Indiana’s 2022 policy agenda includes opportunities to promote the long-term advancement of affordable housing, community development resources, and consumer protections in Indiana at the federal, state, and administrative levels.
