    Summary

    The Promise Neighborhoods program aims to significantly improve the academic and developmental outcomes of children living in the most distressed communities of the United States, including ensuring school readiness, high school graduation, and access to a community-based continuum of high-quality services. The program serves neighborhoods with high concentrations of low-income individuals; multiple signs of distress, which may include high rates of poverty, childhood obesity, academic failure, and juvenile delinquency, adjudication, or incarceration; and schools implementing comprehensive support and improvement activities or targeted support and improvement activities. All strategies in the continuum of solutions must be accessible to children with disabilities and English learners.


    The Promise Neighborhoods program works to improve the educational and developmental outcomes of children and youth in our most distressed communities and to transform those communities by:

    • Identifying and increasing the capacity of eligible organizations that are focused on achieving results for children and youth throughout an entire neighborhood;
    • Building a complete continuum of cradle-through-college-to-career solutions of both education programs and family and community supports, with great schools at the center. All strategies in the continuum of solutions must be accessible to children with disabilities and English learners;
    • Integrating programs and breaking down agency silos so that solutions are implemented effectively and efficiently across agencies;
    • Developing the local infrastructure of systems and resources needed to develop, implement, and sustain effective interventions to improve education outcomes and enhance family and community well-being across the broader region beyond the initial neighborhood; and
    • Learning about the overall impact of the Promise Neighborhoods program and about the relationship between particular strategies in Promise Neighborhoods and student outcomes, including through an evaluation of the program, particular elements within the continuum of solutions, or both.

    In FY2017, applications were accepted under the following Priority Areas:

    • Submission of Promise Neighborhood Plan - To meet this priority, an applicant must submit a plan to create a Promise Neighborhood. The plan must describe the need in the neighborhood, a strategy to build a continuum of solutions, and the applicants capacity to achieve results.
    • Promise Neighborhoods in Rural Communities - To meet this priority, an applicant must propose to implement a Promise Neighborhood strategy that (1) meets all of the requirements in Absolute Priority 1; and (2) serves one or more rural communities only.
    • Promise Neighborhoods in Tribal Communities - To meet this priority, an applicant must propose to implement a Promise Neighborhood strategy that (1) meets all of the requirements in Absolute Priority 1; and (2) serves one or more Indian tribes.

    Within these funding priorities, applicants may also address the following competitive preference priorities:

    • Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation (BCJI) Program. To meet this priority, an applicant must propose to serve geographic areas that were the subject of a targeted strategy addressing crime in a specific community pursuant to a BCJI grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Justice during FY 2012 or later years. To be eligible under this priority, the applicant must either:

      • Demonstrate that it has received a DFC grant to prevent opioid abuse (as one of its areas of focus) (https://www.samhsa.gov/grants/grant-announcements-2016); or
      • Provide, in its application, a memorandum of understanding between it and a partner that is a recipient of a DFC grant to address opioid abuse prevention as one of its areas of focus.
    • Evidence-Based Activities, Strategies, or Interventions. To meet this priority, an applicant must propose to carry out evidence-based activities, strategies, or interventions that, based on information included in their application, are supported by promising evidence.
    • Promise Zones. To meet this priority, an applicant must include a Certification of Consistency with Promise Zone Goals and Implementation (HUD Form 50153) signed by an authorized representative of the lead organization of a Promise Zone designated by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or the United States Department of Agriculture.

    Additional Information

    NOTE: Because applicants must now propose to use grant funds for limited planning activities, the Department will no longer award separate Promise Neighborhoods planning and implementation grants. In this years competition, new data and performance management requirements have been introduced while continuing to prioritize evidence-based activities and programs. Applicants are now required to address specific data collection and performance management requirements to ensure the proper collection of data necessary to effectively employ comprehensive case and longitudinal data management systems.
