Equity Resources for Planners and Officials 

The Michigan Association of Planning has long recognized the value of integrating equity in to all plans and policies.  Our Social Equity and Planning Committee has worked tirelessly to provide tools, training and Equity Summits to advance the topic.  Below are resources to assist you.  This webpage will be updated regularly.  


In partnership with Dr. Carolyn Loh of Wayne State University, the Michigan Chapter APA and its Social Equity Committee supported the development of an equity audit tool for city, township, and village master/comprehensive plans. The goal of this equity audit is to explore the ways that Michigan communities are planning for equitable futures, and, we hope, to spark useful conversations about your community’s goals and values.
