The Northern Tier region is in northwest Massachusetts, running from the New York border east to Gardner.
The decision to concentrate on the Northern Tier grew out of a previous analysis of the state showing that 32 of the poorest 50 communities in Massachusetts are in the first congressional district and that the communities along Route 2 create a solid block of the poorest communities in the state.
The Northern Tier region includes all towns in Franklin County, the Berkshire County towns of Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, New Ashford, North Adams, Savoy and Williamstown, and the Worcester County towns of Ashburnham, Athol, Gardner, Hubbardston, Petersham, Phillipston, Royalston, Templeton, Westminster and Winchendon.
