About the SREAP project

The Strategic and Racial Equity Action Plan (SREAP provides a common focus and gives direction to City leaders in the development of operational plans and activities for the next two years.

Using this plan, we will close gaps and put Minneapolis on a trajectory for advancing equity for all residents, in particular those who have been historically marginalized. By focusing a small group of policy priorities, we can be much more intentional in our efforts to embed racial equity principles and strategies into goals, operations, programs, services and policies. The rigor of implementation of the plan, coupled with responsive community engagement, will support improving outcomes for residents through the deployment of race and equity standards in the way we work and the way we deliver services.

The Strategic and Racial Equity Action Plan builds on the City's Comprehensive 2040 Plan and informed components of the City’s 2020 budget.

The Comprehensive Plan, also known as Minneapolis 2040, is a set of interconnected policy ideas that the community has lifted up over the past two years for the City to pursue. Seven policy areas were selected as priorities for SREAP. The public priorities are: public safety, housing, & economic development. The internal operational priorities of the city are around diversifying the workforce, diversifying with whom the city spends money, using racially disaggregated data in decision making and engagement with diverse communities via Appointed Boards and Commissions (ABCs). These identified priorities will serve as guideposts to steer resource allocation across departments and inform policymaker decisions.
