The Regional Prosperity Plan (RPP) is about making sure that everyone in the Bay Area can thrive.  It’s a plan for addressing barriers that continue to lead to an hour glass economy with a large number of extraordinarily wealthy residents and a base of people living in poverty with very few living comfortably on middle-wage salaries. The Capstone Conference will explore the solutions in: 

  • Workforce Development 
  • Economic Development 
  • Public transportation 
  • Preserving and building affordable housing in transit-served communities. 


Join local residents, elected leaders, community-based organizations, labor unions, regional planning agencies, community colleges, workforce development boards, training providers, economic development professionals, grant making foundations, transportation and housing advocates and experts in plenary sessions, workshops and poster exhibits.  

Learn about pilot projects and best practices.  Explore funding options for the next steps. Be a part of implementing the Regional Prosperity Plan--expanding, scaling pilot projects and continuing to work collaboratively towards prosperity for everyone.

(The RPP and the Capstone Conference are funded by a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.)
