Promise Neighborhood Grant

Orchestras involved with in-depth partnerships with schools and other community-based organizations to support youth and learning in low-income neighborhoods, may wish to become familiar with the Promise Neighborhoods grant program at the U.S. Department of Education.  These highly competitive grants may be an option for a community partner and are available for community-wide projects that advance youth development from “cradle to career”  and applicants that have an arts-related focus should feel encouraged to apply.  The most recent deadline to submit applications was July 27, 2012. Complete information is available from the U.S. Department of Education.
