Hartford is among five cities in Connecticut to win a competition for grants of $450,000 that will fund programs focused on increasing opportunities for low- and moderate-income residents.

In addition to Hartford, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston will announce Tuesday that Danbury, East Hartford, Middletown and Waterbury were selected as winners of the “Working Cities Challenge.”

“This is just the start of a lot of hard work on behalf of these cities’ residents,” Eric Rosengren, the president of the Boston Fed, said. “I’m looking forward to working with these communities and following their progress over the coming years.”
