APA Legislative Priorities

2021 will be a critical year for planners and the communities they serve. As communities begin to emerge from pandemic lockdowns, the work of recovering, rebuilding, and reinventing will be the focus driving much of what planners do.

The 2021 APA legislative priorities reflect this significant moment. Federal action on these four issues — paired with the work of planners on the local and regional level — present an opportunity to ensure that recovery investments now build a foundation for an equitable, resilient future.
