Promise Zone Benefits

The Edgehill Coalitoin has been invited to participate in Nashville's application to apply to make Edgehill a Promise Zone.

The Promise Zone designation partners the Federal government with local leaders who are addressing multiple community revitalization challenges in a collaborative way and have demonstrated a commitment to results. Promise Zone Designees will receive:

  • An opportunity to engage five AmeriCorps VISTA members in the Promise Zone's work
  • A federal liaison assigned to help designees navigate federal programs
  • Preferences for certain competitive federal grant programs and technical assistance from participating federal agencies
  • Promise Zone tax incentives, as enacted by Congress.
  • Altogether, this package of assistance will help local leaders accelerate efforts to revitalize their communities. The Promise Zone designation will be for a term of 10 years and may be extended as necessary to capture the full term of availability of the Promise Zones tax incentives, pending the enactment of tax incentives by Congress. During this term, the specific benefits made available to Promise Zones will vary from year to year, and sometimes more often than annually, due to changes in the agency policies and changes in appropriations and authorizations for relevant programs.
