ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Rochester is one of 12 cities across the country receiving grant money from the “Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Innovation Teams” program.

The Flower City is getting the private grant as part of a program that takes a new approach to solving issues within the city.

Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren is hopeful the new partnership will lead to strategic and innovative approaches to creating jobs, safe neighborhoods and improved education.

Warren expects the city to use the money to expand its innovation office.

The new teams will use data to assess problems, come up with solutions and measure results.

The program is expected to begin by next spring.
