Congress May Gut Promise Neighborhoods Funding

Funding for the Promise Neighborhoods program — one of the most innovative and exciting federal efforts to combat poverty and lift up millions of poor children –- is in jeopardy.

With $10 million in funding from the Department of Education last year, 21 communities were able to begin planning their own Promise Neighborhoods — uniting nonprofits, health centers, schools, faith leaders, and foundations to wrap children in a system of support and help break the cycle of generational poverty.

These communities — and the more than 300 additional communities that applied for funding — need continued support from the federal government.

You can help make this right.

Add your organization to this letter to show your community’s support for President Obama’s full $150 million request for Promise Neighborhoods in FY 2012.

Send your organization name to Kisasi Brooks at kisasi@policylink.org to join the hundreds of groups calling for continued funding for Promise Neighborhoods.

    All these NGO's are serving their life for a great purpose to serve the humanity. We all have people in our surrounding who need our attention and we only survey them by funding a part of our salaries to meet their basic needs of life.
