What is the San Diego Regional Policy & Innovation Center?
We are a hub for innovative partnerships. Through multi-jurisdictional collaboration, original research, and data analysis, the Policy & Innovation Center addresses broad regional challenges, meets the needs of underserved communities, and jumpstarts transformational shifts to strengthen our economy and build regional resilience.
A key piece of our work is attracting funding and resources to the San Diego region. Our immediate focus is supporting recovery from the cascading economic effects of COVID-19 by working with local municipalities and regional agencies to co-design new programs and pursue federal recovery and infrastructure funding.
As a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization of The San Diego Foundation, the San Diego Regional Policy & Innovation Center benefits from The Foundation’s community knowledge; strong relationships with all sectors of the San Diego economy, including community-based, grassroots organizations; mission and vision of just, equitable, and resilient communities; and its support systems and resources to help achieve goals.
