This Strategic Action Plan has two overall uses. First, it is a long-term map that outlines transformational ideas and projects developed over six months through extensive collaborative efforts. The plan focuses on ways to make dramatic changes to accomplish the Promise Zone goal of reducing poverty in the region.
The plan is also a tool for organizations applying for grants through the Promise Zone process. The plan provides specific documentation in an easy-to-use format to reference big ideas, projects and specific goals in submitting any applications for funding. If grant applicants need more specific details from strategic planning sessions, they can find additional documentation in the longer Strategic Action Framework from which this action plan was developed.
