Promise Neighborhoods

Posted by on May 03, 2010

Community leaders and advocates across America have been waiting for the day when the Obama Administration would kick-start the much-anticipated federal Promise Neighborhoods program.

Today’s the day – and the Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink is here to help.

Today, the U.S. Department of Education announced the Promise Neighborhoods federal application for up to twenty $400,000 – $500,000 competitive planning grants to help urban, rural, and tribal communities design a Promise Neighborhoods pipeline of programs to support children from birth through college. Applications will be due June 25.

You can find out more about how your community may win one of these grants at the Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink, an independent, foundation-supported resource to help guide you through the application and implementation process.

Right now, the  Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink website offers links to the federal application and webinar series, and background information on Promise Neighborhoods and the Harlem Children’s Zone, the successful anti-poverty program the initiative is modeled on.

In the coming days and weeks, though, the site will evolve into a comprehensive repository of the information you need to craft a successful application – and, eventually, to turn your ideas into reality.

Please visit the Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink website for more information.

Thank you and good luck,

The Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink
