The Boston Fed engages leaders from across state government, the private sector, national philanthropy, local philanthropy and nonprofits to determine whether there is need and support to launch the Working Cities Challenge in a particular state. Many of these leaders become members of the steering committee. They help us shape and align the approach with local history and opportunities, and implement it well.
Prize funds for communities are provided by funder partners. The Boston Fed does not provide funding. Staffing is provided by the Boston Fed.
