The Hartford Foundation for Public Giving announced the appointment of Jay Williams of Washington, D.C. as President of the Hartford Foundation.  He will assume responsibilities on July 17, 2017 and succeeds former Board Chair Yvette Melendez, now acting as Interim President, following the planned retirement of Linda J. Kelly who served the Foundation as its President for over 11 years.

Mr. Williams recently served as U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Economic Development where he led the federal economic development agenda for the United States as head of the U.S. Economic Development Administration. He brings experience and knowledge in capacity building, workforce readiness, economic security and urban revitalization.


    Our team works to align services, practices, policies, and resources at the local, regional, and state levels. Commitment, care, and support for children and families must happen at all of these levels in order to build and sustain a quality early childhood system.
