"This represents an important tool in the creation of a better Gary, a city that is designed to provide the best government that tax dollars can buy,” said Freeman-Wilson. “This not only represents a partnership with the federal government, but the strengthened engagement of our local educational institutions, local medical providers, local foundations, local non-profits and corporate partners. It is our collective goal to be the hardest working SC2 team in the history of the program.”
“I congratulate Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson and the City of Gary officials for being selected as 1 of 7 White House Council Strong Cities, Strong Communities nationwide," said Indiana First District Congressman Pete Visclosky.

The enhanced support of the SC2 program and the Community Solutions Team will build upon the City of Gary’s initial successes, will complement Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson’s long-term vision for the city, and will ensure the sustainability of future projects for the benefit of the residents of Gary and throughout Northwest Indiana.”
