Project Description

Developed by a group of key regional stakeholders, Metro Hartford Progress Points is a periodic 'check-up' to build greater understanding about issues facing the Greater Hartford community. The three editions of Progress Points take a deeper look at key issues impacting our communities and how they are connected. The reports ask how we can build on our strengths and fully utilize the assets that the region has to provide access to opportunity for all.
