HUD Administrator Visits Evansville to Discuss Promise Zone

City of Evansville Seal

Housing and Urban Development’s Midwest administrator visits Evansville.

Antonio Riley will conduct an organizational meeting following the Obama Administration’s designation of the city as a promise zone.

The designation means Evansville will receive ten years of federal support to improve educational opportunities, reduce crime, and increase access to quality affordable housing.

Wednesday’s meeting with city officials will focus on how promise zones are organized in other cities and how it could function here.
