Policy and Advocacy
The Rocky Mountain Partnership works to identify opportunities to develop and/or shift policy and funding to positively impact economic and social mobility in the region. The group who oversees this work is called the Policy & Legislative Advisory Network (PLAN). This group works to inform a collective set of policy priorities, understand the impacts of existing legislation, monitor emerging policies and legislation, and lift opportunities for proactive policymaking.
