Civic Innovators Gather in Long Beach for Knight Cities Collaboration

Knight Cities ChallengeHow do you make cities more successful? Attract and keep talent. Expand economic opportunities. Increase civic engagement.

The challenge for the Knight Cities Challenge is figuring out which ideas for 26 Knight communities do that best and are most deserving of a pool of $5 million.

The first step is cutting down more than 4,500 proposals to 100-125 finalists. That announcement will be made Jan. 12. Winners will be announced in spring 2016.

The Long Beach Community Foundation hosted a breakfast in Long Beach to provide an update to Knight Cities applicants before the finalist announcement.
