Preference point recommendation will be provided to a partner organization that can demonstrate how their program/project meets one or several of the Promise Zone goals.The City of Hartford is able to certify only one grant proposal per competition, so it is important to contact the Promise Zone Director early in the process to determine if other local groups are interested in a particular grant opportunity. The City of Hartford encourages local groups to partner whenever possible when there is more than one group interested. Organizations must submit a completed and signed Request for North Hartford Promise Zone Certification to the Promise Zone Director least 2 weeks in advance of the grant due date.
