Three California communities to get Neighborhood Promise grants

September 22, 2010

Three California communities, including Boyle Heights, are in line for “Promise Neighborhood” grants from the federal government, which aim to make neighborhoods safer and more nurturing for children growing up in low-income communities. The program is modeled after the widely acclaimed Harlem Children’s Zone, which combines social services, education and college aid to try to break the pattern of inter-generational poverty. See more on these grants at John Fensterwald’s education blog.
