The Knight Cities Challenge & Neighborhood Spotlight Grant Announcements!

Neighborhood-SpotlightThe Knight Cities Challenge seeks new ideas from innovators who will take hold of the future of our cities.

From a pool of $5 million, Knight Foundation is looking to award grants at the city, neighborhood, and block level, and all sizes in between.

We are looking for fresh ideas that focus on one or all of these three key drivers of city success: attracting talented people, expanding economic opportunity, and creating a culture of civic engagement.

No project is too small — so long as your idea is big.

For those who want to learn more please attend an in-person community event:
