Shifting the Burden: Social Services, Safety, & Redevelopment

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

Bedrosian Center / SoCal ASPA forum series


Shifting the Burden is the kick-off event which begins a year-long series of panel discussions. Local and state government leaders and scholars will discuss how organizations are realigning the services they provide with funding sources that shift the cost burdens of service across levels/agencies of government. We will focus on prisoner reentry, social services, and redevelopment.
