underserved areas of your community; recognize I-DIEM will provide planning resources, recommendations,
templates, and other assets for implementing the program, but does not provide funding support for hosting or implementing the program.

public comments about the program or its focus, and will serve as ambassadors in the promotion of Diversity,
Equity, and Inclusion while promoting and implementing the HERricane Program.
