South Coast Connect for Success (SCSS)

The OEIB developed the Regional Achievement Collaborative pilot to fund and study 12 regional partnerships that are focused on improving outcomes by aligning and leveraging the efforts, time and energy of many. The RAC project represents OEIB’s deep commitment to the idea that it is only by empowering those closest to the ground – removing barriers and leaving space for local innovation – that we will reach our state’s ambitious goals.
