Evansville Promise Zone will be sustained through three primary strategies.

  1. Diversified funding streams – local, state and federal grants. The City of Evansville and EHC are prepared to coordinate resources and lead future fundraising efforts on behalf of Evansville Promise Zone. Funding mechanisms might include fundraising campaigns with partners tapping their own unrestricted funding base for sustainable support and private investment from local / regional business partners.
  2. Partnership capital – diverse stakeholders advocating within spheres of influence, brokering new relationships and connecting Evansville Promise Zone to new resources.
  3. Performance measurement – data-driven decision-making, informed process improvement and public progress reports will help secure new funding.
