Audio and transcript available here >>

Battered by the recession like so many other cities, both Hartford, Conn. and Richmond, Va. recently established task forces to develop recommendations aimed at providing greater opportunity to area residents. This audio conference, sponsored by Spotlight on Povery and Opportunity and the National League of Cities, explored questions like: What are the priority recommendations in each city? What is the expectation around implementation? How will progress be assessed? And what are the key components of making job creation ideas work and stick over long the haul? Spotlight on Poverty and Opportunity is a CLASP-managed initiative and one of the leading sources for go-to poverty news and information.
