From the Office of Innovation and Improvement.

As the 21 planning grantees of the Promise Neighborhoods initiative get underway, help for them is being provided by not only the Office of Innovation and Improvement and other Department of Education programs, but also from the Promise Neighborhoods Institute at PolicyLink, an independent, nonprofit resource offering tools, information, and strategies to communities interested in creating their own Promise Neighborhood--whether they received a federal grant or not. The Institute, which serves as a comprehensive hub for high-quality technical assistance providers and consultants, including PolicyLink, the Harlem Children's Zone, the Center for the Study of Social Policy, and Bridgespan, offers an interactive map of Promise Neighborhood allies and a discussion forum for federal grantees and non-grantees alike. Other organizations facilitating the sharing of information among communities include the United Neighborhood Council's Building Neighborhoods blog. (January 2011)
