Governor Charlie Baker was joined by President of Federal Reserve Bank of Boston Eric Rosengren and Housing and Economic Development Secretary Jay Ash to launch the second round of the Working Cities Challenge in Massachusetts, a grant competition designed to support cross-sector, collaborative leadership to improve the lives of low-income people in the Commonwealth’s smaller cities. In January 2014, six cities in Massachusetts received $1.8 million in funding for projects to address issues impacting low-income communities. Funding provided by the Commonwealth, private sector, and local and national philanthropic organizations allowed the Boston Fed to formally launch a second round of the Challenge in July 2015. These awards are designed to provide resources to cities to further develop their initial application and collaborative, with the goal of submitting a robust bid for equal multiyear awards between $300,000 and $500,000 in the summer of 2016. The initial $15,000 awards were presented to Working Cities teams from Brockton, Haverhill, Lowell, Lynn, New Bedford, Pittsfield, Revere, Salem, Springfield and Worcester.
