Protect Funding for Promise Neighborhoods!

Promise Neighborhoods, the hot new program based in years of experience and successful efforts, is on the chopping block in the FY 2012 budget negotiations.

Inspired by the model of the Harlem Children’s Zone, Promise Neighborhoods wrap children in high-quality, coordinated health, social, community, and educational support from cradle to college to career. This successful program is exactly what we need to break the cycle of generational poverty, but Congress may not agree.

Congress is currently negotiating the FY 2012 budget, and funding for Promise Neighborhoods could be eliminated.

Tell Congress to keep Promise Neighborhoods off the chopping block.

We’ve already begun to see the remarkable strides of communities building Promise Neighborhoods throughout the country. Last year, 21 communities started planning Promise Neighborhoods with grants from the Department of Education, and this year over 200 communities applied for $30 million in grants to plan or implement Promise Neighborhoods.

Send a message to key Senators and members of Congress to make sure Promise Neighborhoods stay funded so children in every community have the opportunity to learn, grow, and succeed.

    The links don't go to an actionable page. I wanted to share this, but don't think it will do much good without the 'email your Congresspeople' tool.
