The purpose of this project is to achieve the goals of America's Promise by building local infrastructure for brokering community resources into schools. This grant will support start-up activities to bring schools and communities together to ensure children's access to the five resources being targeted by America's Promise. The project will be conducted in three phases: (1) announce and launch America's Promise in Schools; (2) mobilize and prepare schools and communities to become "Schools of Promise"; and (3) institutionalize a school-based/linked resource delivery system.
