Working Towards a Better Future
The St. Louis Promise Zone is an area that includes parts of North St. Louis City and North St. Louis County, designated in 2015 as a part of a federal program intended to increase economic activity, improve educational outcomes, reduce serious and violent crime, invest in transformative development, and improve health and wellness in high-poverty urban, rural, and tribal communities.
The St. Louis Promise Zone program partners with local leaders to give communities proven tools to rebuild and put people back to work. Our federal designation, which lasts 10 years, is a catalyst for ongoing collaboration and change that will drive regional growth and create a better, more inclusive St. Louis region.
The Promise Zone includes parts of North St. Louis City and North St. Louis County.
