IDEAS THAT INNOVATE
State and Local Policies
As an increasing number of Rust Belt communities realize the enormous contributions that immigrants make to local economic growth and prosperity, new and innovative economic development initiatives are being launched to build more inclusive and welcoming economies. These initiatives often include a number of programs that facilitate immigrant entrepreneurship, talent inclusion, welcoming work, and other elements. As rapid as these local programmatic initiatives are being launched, innovations also are being pursued by state and local public policymakers.
Thus, Welcoming America’s Ideas that Innovate is a collection of state and local public policies that further our efforts to pursue inclusive economic development and immigrant inclusion.
