As a place-based initiative, the SLATE-Z catchment area is home to approximately       197,539 residents in parts of the following neighborhoods of the City of Los Angeles: Vernon-Central, South Park, Florence, Exposition Park, Vermont Square, Leimert Park, and Baldwin Hills Crenshaw.

The map follows along major transit lines that come into and through South LA in order to capitalize on revitalization opportunities related to transit-oriented development and education, training, and job opportunities accessible to residents via transit. The boundaries were also drawn in an effort to capture the ethnic diversity present in South Los Angeles and include the high schools most in need, while adhering to guidelines and population limits set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the Promise Zone competition.
