How 6 Cities Won the 'Working Cities Challenge'

Cross-sector collaboration helped six Massachusetts cities share $1.8 million in grants this week.

"Six Massachusetts cities were awarded $1.8 million in grants this week for their plans to collaborate across sectors on big, positive changes," reports Mary Jander.

"The six were picked from 20 cities that entered a 'Working Cities' competition created by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston in a public-private partnership (PPP) with Living Cities, a philanthropic umbrella organization of 22 institutions and foundations. Living Cities is headed by Ben Hecht, one of Future Cities' Top 100 City Innovators Worldwide. Also in the PPP were the Massachusetts Competitive Partnership (a coalition of the state's largest employers) and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts."
