Promise Zones are often larger than a single neighborhood; however, a Neighborhood Revitalization Strategy Area may be located within a portion of a designated Promise Zone. To request that a portion of the Promise Zone area also receive NRSA designation, the grantee should submit the NRSA proposed boundaries and demographic information for HUD review. Promise Zones located within a jurisdiction actively implementing comprehensive community revitalization and meeting boundary and demographic requirements, as confirmed by HUD's Office of Field Policy and Management, will be presumed to meet the above criteria and HUD-CPD will automatically approve the NRSA designation.
