In a historic move, Albuquerque became the first city in the nation city to take action through an Executive Order to advance the Justice40 Initiative, a Biden-Harris Administration initiative to deliver 40 percent of overall benefits from certain federal investments to disadvantaged communities.

The City’s Executive Order also calls for the establishment of the Albuquerque Justice40 Oversight Coordinating Committee (J40 OCC) to prepare and implement a five-year CABQ Justice40 Equitable and Just Administration Plan. This is a groundbreaking effort in which the community and City will come together to prioritize investment in historically under-resourced communities.
