The Knight Foundation is accepting applications for their Knight Cities Challenge until October 27, 2015. Applicants are invited to share their ideas for making their cities more vibrant places to live and work. Grants will be awarded at city, neighborhood, and block levels, as well as every size in between. The total pool of funding available is $5 million.
Applicants should focus on three key drivers of city success:
- Talent: Ideas that help cities attract and keep talented people.
- Opportunity: Ideas that expand economic prospects by breaking down divides and connecting people.
- Engagement: Ideas that spur connection and civic involvement.
The Knight Foundation supports transformational ideas that promote quality journalism, advance media innovation, engage communities and foster the arts.
