The Hartford Foundation is working through partnerships to reduce persistent disparities in our region where we know them to be most pronounced. By listening and engaging throughout the community and applying our own research and assessment, it has become clear that Greater Hartford must achieve more racial, geographic and economic inclusion to fulfill its potential as a thriving, equitable, and leading driver of statewide and regional prosperity.
Our commitment to creating opportunities for all residents in our region will address disparities by Race, Place and Income. These disparities result from decades of systemic factors, structural racism and disinvestment in many of our communities.
Using research, evaluation and feedback from our partners, we have identified the following outcome areas for our work. Each outcome area focuses on the people and places facing the greatest disparities.
