Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Federal Reserve Bank of Boston

Boston, Massachusetts



The Boston Fed (along with Living Cities) launched the Working Cities Challenge as a grant initiative to fund revitalization projects in cities coping with disinvestment, rising poverty and other problems. This three-year grant supports the expansion of the Working Cities Challenge to additional struggling cities in New England and to build towards the transference of the model to other cities throughout the country.
