Promise Zone Initiative Stakeholder Webcasts

Posted by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development on September 29, 2014

On behalf of our federal partners, we are pleased to announce the second round of the Promise Zone Initiative competition.

The deadline for applications is November 21, 2014, by 5 p.m. EST.

That is why we would also like to invite you to the Promise Zone Initiative Stakeholder Webcasts on September 29 and October 1, 2014. There will be 3 webcasts geared to various audiences: 1) Tribal; 2) Urban; and 3) Rural.

For communities selected, the federal government will partner to help the Promise Zones access the resources and expertise they need. To date, there are 12 federal agencies working in close collaboration to provide resources and expertise to urban, rural, and tribal Promise Zones to expand economic mobility and opportunity in their communities. AmeriCorps VISTA members are serving in the current Promise Zones and will be a part of the new communities selected in this next round.

Each webcast will provide a general overview in addition to the tailored presentation.

For more background on the Promise Zone Initiative and to RSVP for the webcasts, please visit the Promise Zone webpage.
