The Working Cities Challenge is a grant competition designed by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston to support cross-sector, collaborative leadership and ambitious work to improve the lives of people in small and mid-size cities. Hartford and East Hartford are among five cities in our state to receive the grant.

    As a long time resident of East hartford and an employeee of Pratt and Whitney, a large employer in the area, I’m particularly interested in the opportunities this grant will provide. The regional economy is vital to the sucess of our cities, and vice versa. I’m interested to see how this grant will help to achieve those ends.
