RIBA Aspira Center

 

 

Waterbury has won a three-year grant from the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston through its Working Challenge Cities initiative to launch a multi-pronged effort to address unemployment in one neighborhood. 

 

Waterbury’s RIBA ASPIRA will address the economic and racial/ethnic inequities that have devalued this once vibrant South End neighborhood (River Baldwin) by creating a strong, resident-driven, civic infrastructure, realigning/relocating job training and education services to increase resident access, and revising child care decision making policies to be more equitable insuring adequate access for neighborhood children and families.

Focusing on one neighborhood provides an opportunity to advance changes in systems and policies and pilot a resident engagement model that can be replicated in other city neighborhoods.
