The West Sacramento College Promise is an initiative approved by the voters of the City of West Sacramento in November 2016 as part of the City's Kids' Home Run Program. The West Sacramento College Promise allocates funds to cover the first two years of community college fees for eligible West Sacramento students. The program is a partnership between the City of West Sacramento, Washington Unified School District, and Sacramento City College.
