The Obama Administration invites a new round of eligible applicants to apply for a Promise Zone designation. Urban, rural, and tribal communities nationwide are invited to put forward plans to address multiple community revitalization challenges in a collaborative way.
Any community meeting the eligibility criteria can apply for a designation. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will designate 7 Promise Zones across urban, rural, and tribal communities in the Spring of 2016.
A non-binding Application Request Form is due by February 19, 2016 EST. All Application submissions must be received by 5:00 PM EST on Tuesday, February 23, 2016 via MAX Survey.
