The SAGE Service Area was re-drawn in 2014 to align with the Eastside Promise Zone designated by the White House in January.
The Eastside Promise Zone includes the Eastside Promise Neighborhood and the Choice Neighborhood, as well as EastPoint, the four-square-mile footprint where the two federal grant neighborhoods overlap.
