City puts $100K grant up for grabs to improve NYC nabes

There's so much good technology being built in the borough, why not use some of it to improve our neighborhoods?

The Neighborhood Challenge 5.0 wants to find and pay for a great nonprofit-startup partnership that will use innovative tools to help improve a neighborhood.

The grant is up to $100,000 to improve neighborhood problems like: management of public space, sustainability and energy efficiency, and transportation and transit.

According to the competition’s website, it is looking to support “innovative ideas that use data-driven capacity building solutions to improve operations, target services, or address local public policy challenges.”

Sounds like a tech solution waiting to happen. Get to it, civic hackers.

Applications are due by May 14, and there is a kickoff event with more instructions on March 28.
