Forging Partnerships to Improve Economic Security

L.A. County is working to lift low-income residents by addressing poverty, homelessness, and workforce and small business development. To bolster this work, the county is creating a new division centered around strategic partnerships and new initiatives.

FUSE executive fellow Kishani De Silva will design a plan for the division that helps the county more effectively and sustainably carry out its mission. As part of this work, she will guide the execution of new initiatives that expand opportunities and benefits to economically disadvantaged residents. The goal is to maximize limited resources, accelerate progress on poverty and homelessness, and more fully assist residents of L.A. County.
