“UNPRECEDENTED PLANNING PROCESSES” The Education Innovator, Department of Education

The Department of Education released their latest newsletter today, highlighting the astonishing and unprecedented work communities are doing to become Promise Neighborhoods. They also stressed the role of the Promise Neighborhoods Institute in assisting these communities, saying:

“Help for them is being provided by not only the Office of Innovation and Improvement and other Department of Education programs, but also from the Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink, an independent, nonprofit resource offering tools, information, and strategies to communities interested in creating their own Promise Neighborhood – whether they received a federal grant or not. The Institute, which serves as a comprehensive hub for high-quality technical assistance providers and consultants, including PolicyLink, the Harlem Children’s Zone, the Center for the Study of Social Policy, and Bridgespan, offers an interactive map of Promise Neighborhood allies and a discussion forum for federal grantees and non-grantees alike.”

It’s true! And in case you need a refresher, here’s our map. Want to get in on the discussions? Shoot us an email at PromiseNeighborhoods@policylink.org.
