On September 15, 2015, HUD’s Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) convened a panel of experts to obtain insights on potential evaluation strategies for federal place-based initiatives such as the Strong Cities, Strong Communities Initiative; My Brother’s Keeper; Sustainable Communities Initiative; the Byrne Criminal Justice Innovation Program; Choice Neighborhoods; and Promise Zones. An evaluation framework for the Promise Zones initiative was a particular focus of the convening.
