About the IndyEast Promise Zone:
Promise Zones are high-poverty, high capacity communities where the federal government works with local leaders to increase efforts and achieve neighborhood-created goals and priorities over a ten-year period. Over the next several years the Promise Zone, along with neighborhood residents and implementation partners will work to carry out the activities and interventions while leveraging new opportunities. VISTA members will work with the well-established development team throughout their term of service and will be connected with partners at all levels (neighborhood, city, state, federal) while taking part in professional development opportunities.
