    I'm surprised that there are no awards west of the Rockies, and very few west of the Mississippi.

    There is still $61 million left to award in the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative and we were happy to be able to announce this morning that Seattle Housing Authority is one of six finalists competing for a portion of those dollars. There's a San Francisco project that is one of the six finalists as well, so there are still two West Coast communities in the running for Choice Neighborhoods grant money.

    Gramtees appear to be mostly Urban areas what about midsize communities 100,000 or less?

    Promise cities, towns and neighborhoods need not only those who receive a large planing grant.
    How about but like any county office of Education so bringing stakeholders to so focus on gangs and violence.
    A effort in progress may so lead to that of the above strategy.
    But it does take the TA and a County Office Superintendent who cares about the youth now but heading for jail and prison. Live in Santa Cruz County near Silicon Valley and stay tuned.
    Closed group open to more who see possibilites in public domain: King/Chavez Legacy Teams. http://www.linkedin.com/in/grupoamistad
    and now a new possibility: that within Linkedin groups but a "search" for Gang For Good.
    Inf. on that vision/work to so bring Ready by 21 as framework for key that of Promise Towns.
    For sure urban cities have hugh issue's but all youth have issue's and Dr. King's Legacy didn't but focus on large Urban Cities.
