Mayor's Office of Economic Development
The LA Promise Zone Initiative is a collective impact project involving leaders from government, local institutions, non-profits and community organizations to target resources to create jobs, boost public safety, improve public education and stimulate better housing opportunities for our residents and neighborhoods. We do this by identifying and implementing innovative solutions to problems that affect our neighborhoods. The City of Los Angeles is the lead agency that oversees the Promise Zone Initiative; the Youth Policy Institute is our lead implementation partner. Almost 50 local organizations work together to meet our goals and 40 more have signed on as supporters of the initiative.
