Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood initiative awarded $500,000 over two years

The Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood initiative received a grant of $250,000 for state fiscal year 2014 and second-year grant funding of $250,000 in 2015 from the Ohio Department of Education’s Straight A Fund. With support from state legislators, the funding was included in the state budget to support Promise programs in Ohio.

The Cleveland Central Promise Neighborhood includes a large and growing collaboration of families and youth in Cleveland’s Central neighborhood. It also includes 50 partners and funders who are committed to the vision that every child in the Central neighborhood goes to college by ensuring that all are ready for kindergarten, attend excellent schools, and are connected to a caring adult and community supports.

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of Cleveland, which is a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, is the lead Promise Neighborhood partner.
