Federal Promise Neighborhood Implementation Grant Submitted
White Center CDA completed and submitted the federal Promise Neighborhood grant for White Center Promise. The WCCDA requested $20 million over 5 years to support the infrastructure and programs needed to implement the continuum of solutions developed over the last 18 months. A huge thanks goes out to all of the individuals and organizations who came together to support this huge undertaking.
While the Department of Education has until the end of December to announce the awardees, we are committed to beginning implementation of White Center Promise in January 2013 either way. We have a smaller rollout plan that we will be working on with partners this fall to ensure the work begins in January.
