Partner-Led, Community Focused

As our Promise Zone designation came with no funding attached, funds are gained solely through the collaborative efforts of our partners; this partnership now includes more than 150 private, nonprofit, and public sector organizations. By collaborating, partners can increase capacity, decrease costs, enhance services, gain funds and change more lives. Promise Zone partners take up targeted roles to maximize impact on our 5 focus areas.

  • Community-Based Organizations - Program/Service Provision, Community Member Engagement, Resource Sharing

  • Private Enterprise - Technical Expertise, Business Engagement, Resource Sharing

  • Government Partners - Local, State, and Federal Funding, Technical Assistance

  • Promise Zone - Partner  Coordination, Funding Opportunities, Letter of Support/Federal Preference Points, Direct Access to Grantors, Project Facilitation, Knowledge Sharing

AmeriCorps VISTAs play an integral role in supporting the work of the Promise Zone.
