Join Matt Haggman and Chris Caines, the Miami program team for the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, for a community information session and office hours on the Knight Cities Challenge. The information session will run from 5pm-6pm in the Everglades Room and be followed by small group office hours from 6pm-8pm in the McLeod Room.
The Knight Cities Challenge seeks new ideas from innovators who will take hold of the future of our cities. We’re looking for projects at the city, neighborhood and block level – and all sizes in between – that can be put to work in one of the 26 Knight communities. Winning ideas, which will be announced in spring 2017, will share in $5 million. Ideas, which can be submitted by anyone, from anywhere, must focus on one or more of these three key city drivers: attracting and retaining talented people, expanding economic opportunity and creating a culture of civic engagement.
Learn why Knight cares about these three areas, how to craft your applications, and the challenge time line and review process.
