The Racial Equity & Accountability Project (REAP) Leadership Team will serve as St. Louis County Continuum of Care’s (CoC) community advisory and action group to help ensure that racial disparities in the homeless response system are reduced and ultimately ended. The REAP Leadership Team will be supported with technical assistance and coaching to identify proposed changes and accomplish goals. This team will be made up mostly of people of African Heritage, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and prioritize those with lived experiences of homelessness and housing insecurity.
