New “Anchor Opportunity Network” Will Link Municipal Governments Across Tri-State Area for Community Development
The first official meeting of the newly formed regional Anchor Opportunity Network (AON) was held on Wednesday at Lehman College in the Bronx. The group’s steering committee consists of representatives from leading healthcare and higher education institutions as well as municipal and community leaders from across the Tri-State area. Its purpose is to help “anchor institutions,” including hospitals, universities, cultural organizations and other place-based entities, leverage and align their investments, advancing community well-being and promoting equitable economic growth. The network will serve to accelerate and strengthen efforts that have already been happening on an ad hoc basis around the region and nationwide, organizers from Regional Plan Association (RPA) and Dovetail announced today.
