The Promise Zones initiative is an exciting new strategy being implemented by the Obama Administration to address the challenges of concentrated poverty. Building upon the proven tools implemented by the President during his first term to combat poverty, this initiative will designate a number of high-poverty communities as Promise Zones, with which the federal government will partner and invest in to create jobs, leverage private investment, increase economic activity, expand educational opportunities, and improve public safety.
