Promise Neighborhoods grant

Posted by on August 1st, 2017 Posted in: Children and Teens, Health Information Literacy, Low Income, Minority Health Concerns, Public Health, Scholarships and Grants


The vision of the program is that all children and youth growing up in Promise Neighborhoods have access to great schools and strong systems of family and community support that will prepare them to attain an excellent education and successfully transition to college and a career. The purpose of Promise Neighborhoods is to significantly improve the educational and developmental outcomes of children and youth in our most distressed communities, and to transform those communities by—

  1. Identifying and increasing the capacity of eligible entities that are focused on achieving results for children and youth throughout an entire neighborhood;
  2. Building a complete continuum of cradle-to-career solutions of both educational programs and family and community supports, with great schools at the center;
  3. Integrating programs and breaking down agency “silos” so that solutions are implemented effectively and efficiently across agencies;
  4. Developing the local infrastructure of systems and resources needed to sustain and scale up proven, effective solutions across the broader region beyond the initial neighborhood; and
  5. Learning about the overall impact of the Promise Neighborhoods program and about the relationship between particular strategies in Promise Neighborhoods and student outcomes, including through a rigorous evaluation of the program.

For more information about the grant application, visit the Promise Neighborhoods Applicant Info and Eligibility Page and tune in to the pre-application webinars on Thursday, August 3rd at 1 ET (General Overview) and Thursday, August 10th at 1 ET (Data Requirements).
