Building on those efforts is the Promise Zones initiative where the federal government will partner with and invest in communities to create jobs, leverage private investment, increase economic activity, expand educational opportunities, and improve public safety. The Obama Administration will designate 20 communities over the next four years – including five this year – with an intensive and layered approach to revitalizing communities.
In this Web Forum, the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies and PolicyLink will discuss their partnership on raising public awareness about this promising new initiative, in addition to laying the framework on how community revitalization can promote health equity.
On this Web Forum, we will:
- Inform communities and stakeholder organizations across the country about the Administration’s Promise Zones initiative to increase knowledge of and support for the initiative;
- Help frame this work within the larger health equity movement; and
- Explain why PolicyLink and Joint Center are involved in this effort
