Knight Cities Challenge Accepting Applications

The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is accepting applications for the Knight Cities Challenge through Thursday, November 3. The challenge seeks fresh ideas that help cities attract and keep talented people; expand economic opportunity for people of all backgrounds; and create a culture of engagement so everyone can participate in shaping their city’s future.

Ideas can come from anywhere and anyone as long as the idea is executed in one of the 26 communities where the Knight Foundation currently works.

Hear from Vice President for Community and National Initiatives Lynn Ross, AICP, about the challenge.
