As the Network has partnered with cities across the country, local and national press has taken notice, frequently writing about the Network’s approach and impact.
Fall River remains is participating in a pilot program of the Obama administration that parachutes specialists into communities with seemingly intractable economic problems to help develop a plan for revitalization.
Mayor Chris Boswell said the 311 program allows city officials to access the NRN website for an online account that enables fast, direct contact with private and public sector leaders. He noted that Harlingen is among four cities in Texas selected to join the consortium.
The Network demonstrates the Obama Administration’s continued commitment to partnering with mayors, city managers and other local government leaders to provide them with resources to help build ladders of opportunity and promote economic growth and prosperity for residents.
Cities and regions, including recession-battered Miami, will get "on the ground" assistance from experts to help with a holistic economic recovery in the initial launch of the National Resource Network.
Aimed at helping urban professionals share resources and knowledge, and generally learn from one another, the network is just one part of the Obama administration’s efforts to break down silos in government and empower cities.
Fall River has been selected for a pilot program to connect to national experts to increase economic development.
