Larson on the Promise Zone Designation for Hartford's North End
Hartford – “I am thrilled the North End has received the Promise Zone designation,” said Rep John B. Larson (CT-01). “This is a tremendous step forward for the city of Hartford and the countless men and women of the North End. I commend Mayor Pedro Segarra and all of the city’s partners for making a commitment to revitalize the North End to make it a safer and more prosperous place for its residents.”
As one of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s newest Promise Zones, Hartford will receive technical assistance, preferential access to certain federal programs, and coordinated support. With these resources, the city can expand workforce and educational opportunities for the under- and unemployed, the city’s youth, and businesses looking to expand into the area.
