Working Cities Challenge Initiative: A groundbreaking effort to provide places with economic opportunity and purpose
By Senior Community Development Analyst, Regional & Community Outreach Peter Nalli of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston
Local leaders can do a lot to create economic opportunity and include more residents in that opportunity, when they’re working and learning together. Peter Nalli from the Working Cities Challenge Initiative will talk about The Working Communities Challenge to advance local collaborative efforts that will help build strong, healthy economies and communities in Maine’s rural towns, regions, and smaller cities.
About the Working Cities Challenge (WCC) Initiative
The Working Cities Challenge (WCC) Initiative is a grant competition designed to advance collaborative leadership in smaller, postindustrial cities to transform the lives of their low-income residents. Launched in 2013, the competition benefits many resurgent communities in Massachusetts and has also expanded to Rhode Island and Connecticut, with the eventual goal of spreading across the entire region.
