Governments in Texas are facing unique challenges in the post-pandemic recovery. Home to some of the fastest-growing regions in the country, the pandemic exacerbated the pressure these governments were already facing to expand service delivery. In addition, while the public sector staffing crisis has not hit Texas as hard, data shows that governments in the state are still operating with 20,000 fewer employees than before the pandemic.
The American Rescue Plan Act and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act provide funding for governments to address these capacity challenges. Tune in to learn how your government or agency can leverage federal funding to:
* Manage both short- and long-term capacity issues by modernizing systems and boosting efficiency.
* Upskill employees by freeing up time for high-value work to support retention and performance improvement.
* Increase accountability and transparency by monitoring for fraud and investing in cybersecurity.
