Promise Neighborhood Target Setting Guidance

Promise Neighborhood Target Setting Guidance


Promise Neighborhood implementation grantees are required to set and submit baselines, actual performance data, and targets for each GPRA indicator and for all five years of the grant. While grantees were required to address targets in their applications, these targets were set before the Guidance Document was released and before complete baseline data was available at each site. This continuing guidance identifies several data sources, considerations, and methods sites may consider when setting targets. The submission of final baselines and targets is the first part of the Promise Neighborhood Data Plan required of all implementation grantees.
