The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston has announced the second round of the Working Cities Challenge. The Working Cities Challenge is a grant competition designed to support cross-sector, collaborative leadership and ambitious work to improve the lives of low-income people in smaller cities in Massachusetts. Design grants will afford select cities’ teams the opportunity to build their capacity and strengthen collaborative leadership as they develop their initiatives.
Design Grant applications are due September 30, 2015. Design grantees may apply for implementation grants in May 2016; up to five winning teams will receive a three-year prize with which to implement cross-sector, collaborative initiatives to change systems for the benefit of low-income residents. Prizes of equal amounts per team will be awarded in the summer of 2016.
