About the Equitable Outcomes Team
The Equitable Outcomes Team (EOT) will support the City of Orlando to ensure equitable access to critical services for residents across the city. Dedicated to equity, this team of 3 results-oriented individuals will drive the implementation of a well-defined priority area, resulting in specific, measurable, and above all, equitable outcomes. The EOT is founded on project management, data science, and community engagement, and will strive to bring structure and clarity to City Hall, distilling complex challenges into digestible parts with a laser focus on execution. For the 12-month pilot period, this team of in-house implementation and social impact experts will address disparities in service delivery and scale the city’s pioneering behavioral health crisis response program–always with an equity lens.
Delivery Associates (DA) is partnering with the City of Orlando to recruit, embed, and support this team over the course of their engagement.
About the Community Response Team (CRT) Program
The City of Orlando is scaling up its Community Response Team (CRT), a mental and behavioral health crisis responder program run in partnership with the Orlando Police Department (OPD) and a behavioral healthcare provider. The program is building off initial success in its first year and is a top priority for the Office of the Mayor. The EOT will serve as an internal hub of in-house strategy and implementation experts that will support the CRT to scale-up and serve even more Orlando residents. This team’s responsibilities will also heavily focus on community engagement, working with key leaders and organizations to establish broader community awareness and buy-in for the program. More broadly, this team will help develop the city’s capacity for implementation to support work on other top equity priorities.

- Guiding the city to define success for the program’s scale up
- Ensuring the right community leaders and organizations are informed, involved and engaged to build public support and use of the program
