Our office works to make it simple for residents to work and do business with the City of Hartford.

Our team of community liaisons and 311 operators respond to residents by:
  • Creating and sharing information on city services
  • Relaying quality of life concerns as service requests to city departments
  • Attending neighborhood meetings to address questions and concerns from residents
  • Connecting with community leaders to address concerns
Our services are available both in English and Spanish.
