Promise Neighborhoods: A Federal and Local Level Collaborative Effort


While data is a central element of the Promise Neighborhoods initiative, programs are still early in implementation and limited outcome data are available. Some early accomplishments include: 

  • Increased federal investment over time within an austere budget climate
    • FY10: $10M (all planning)
    • FY11: $30M ($22M – implementation; $6.5M – planning;  $1.5M – national activities)
    • FY12: $60M (TBD, must be obligated by 12/31/12)
  • Positive community feedback and increased coordination of various stakeholders and community sectors at the neighborhood level
