Our Mission

The Congress of Neighboring Communities (CONNECT) brings together the City of Pittsburgh and surrounding municipalities to identify common public policy challenges and advocate for collective change on behalf of Allegheny County’s urban core.

Our effectiveness comes from engaged municipalities who are: tackling the community’s most pressing policy issues, building strong relationships with partners and stakeholders, and advocating for public policy change.
