Promise Neighborhoods: A Prize-Winning Topic!

09 Dec 2011 |

Evan White, a student at University of California, Berkeley Goldman School of Public Policy and School of Law, wrote about Promise Neighborhoods for a scholarship context and took first place!

We know Promise Neighborhoods set a gold standard, and we’re thrilled to see that GovLoop agrees!

Here’s a taste of his work:

“In a time of national crisis, it is tempting to provide temporary salve to those worst hurt by the economic downturn.  But $100 million is insufficient to make a meaningful nationwide difference in areas like unemployment, foreclosure, and economic stimulus.  Rather than inadequately mending the problems of today, we should invest in the promise of tomorrow.”

Amen.
