Draft Economic Action Plan

U.S. currency - dollar bills and coins.

Built on a vision and set of goals from a collaborative regional effort among economic stakeholders, the Draft Economic Action Plan describes the steps that regional actors, with their local public and private, state and federal partners, can take to maintain the resilience of the Bay Area economy while extending its benefits to a wider range of workers and residents.

The Plan outlines 20 actions toward meeting the Bay Area’s four economic goals:

  • Business climate
  • Workforce
  • Housing and work places
  • Infrastructure

Priority Development Areas (PDAs) Program

By bringing transit, jobs and housing together in downtowns, along main streets and around rail stations, PDAs help the Bay Area reduce greenhouse gas emissions and begin to solve the region’s housing crisis.
