Thank you for your interest in this year's Promise Zones competition. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) intends to designate six urban communities. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) intends to designate at least one rural and at least one tribal community.
For the Second Round Promise Zones competition, there were 123 applications submitted: 97 urban applicants, 19 rural applicants, and 7 tribal applicants.

The Promise Zones initiative is truly an interagency collaborative effort. Representatives from across the federal government are currently reviewing the applications to select the next round of designees. The next round of Promise Zone designations are expected to be announced in Spring 2015.
