Mayor Joe Hogsett, in partnership with Marian University’s Center for Vibrant Schools and President Daniel J. Elsener, announced the launch of City Connects in Marion County, an initiative that will invest $7.5 million in 12 public schools on the city’s Far Eastside over the next three years.

City Connects uses an evidence-based strategy to ensure students’ non-academic needs are met. By building a network of support for students and their families, City Connects helps address the out-of-school factors that limit learning and can be barriers to success. The program will be funded by federal American Rescue Plan dollars appropriated by the City-County Council in September.
