SINA’s previous economic development focus had been oriented towards increasing employment opportunities as well as increasing the neighborhood’s median family income. With the economic situation worsening, SINA has felt the need to return to this focal point. As a catalyst for economic development in the Southside neighborhoods of Hartford, Connecticut, SINA’s energies are focused helping refresh commercial corridors with streetscape and façade improvements that are vital to the overall health of the community. For a comprehensive neighborhood renewal strategy to succeed, a vibrant and strong business sector is an essential part of the plan.
