APIAHF submitted comments in response to the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy’s (OSTP) Request for Information on Equitable Data Engagement and Accountability. APIAHF commented on the need for short and long-term investments in data infrastructure and dedicated resources for workforce training to facilitate data sharing between different levels of government. In response to what is needed for community-based organizations to use equitable data to hold government accountable to the public, APIAHF urged for the revision of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Race and Ethnicity Standards that requires the disaggregation of race and ethnicity data across all federal and local agencies as well as greater access to equitable data for limited English proficient (LEP) populations through increased and diversified language services in the collection, analysis, and reporting of federal data.
