2021 Virtual Poverty Conference

CAP Utah's 2nd Virtual Conference!

Join Community Action Partnership of Utah for its 2nd Virtual Conference on June 24, 2021. We will hear from a wide range of experts – including individuals from the Utah Department of Workforce Services – Housing and Community Development Division, The Office of Community Services – US Department of Health and Human Services, National Community Action Partnership, the National Association for State Community Services Programs, WIPFLI, the Nonprofit Risk Management Center, the National Community Action Foundation, and other respected organizations.

This year’s theme is “Turning Challenges into Opportunities.” COVID-19 has brought new challenges, made agencies rethink their strategies, and revealed that not all groups of people have recovered physically and economically at the same rate. For all the challenges, there are new resources, innovations, and partnerships emerging to help agencies refocus their work, create efficiencies, and improve families and communities. Much of this work will center around ensuring equitable access to opportunity.

The keynote speaker will be Dr. Gail Christopher, Executive Director, National Collaborative for Health Equity.

This conference will include sessions such as:

  •  Building partnerships around equity
  • Managing Data Equity Risks and Rewards
  • Analyzing data for better performance
  • Best practices for rapidly hiring short-term staff
  • Updates to the Uniform Guidance
  • Weatherization Reauthorization – Changes to WAP and Enhancement and Innovation funding opportunities
  • Whole Family Case Management – focusing on the need of the family and not just on a service
  •  Advocacy – connecting with your federal delegation
  • And More!
