The Middle Cities Initiative helps the Commonwealth’s older cities facing economic, demographic, and political challenges. The Initiative develops and disseminates concrete policy reforms for local and state officials in four core service areas: Financial management, Education, Economic Development and Public Safety. In addition, the Initiative seeks to reframe the relationship between the state and its older, industrial cities.
