Promise Neighborhoods is a U.S. Department of Education place-based initiative intended to turn neighborhoods of concentrated poverty into neighborhoods of opportunity using a continuum of services from early childhood through college and career. The Promise Neighborhoods model has a strong commitment to results-based planning and improvement using real-time data, and data on solutions implemented and participant outcomes will be collected over multiple years. This specification document details the format of data to be collected for a data file to eventually be made available to researchers via restricted use license from the Department of Education (the Restricted Use Data File).
