Partnering With Local Communities: The First Five "Promise Zones"

Today, President Obama will announce five "Promise Zones" -- partnerships with local communities to work to create jobs, increase economic security, expand educational opportunities, increase access to quality, affordable housing and improve public safety.

These five communities -- in San Antonio, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Southeastern Kentucky, and the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma -- have committed to use existing resources on proven strategies, and make new investments that reward hard work. Because as the President noted, in a country as great as this one, a child’s zip code should never determine their opportunity.

Learn more about these Promise Zones -- and tune in today at 2:20 p.m. ET.
