Every year, Knight Foundation awards creative solutions for urban challenges. The ideas come from architects, city planners, and everyday folks. A mix of winners receive funding to get their ideas off the ground. Today, the Foundation announced 32 more winners, amounting to $5 million in grants.
All the winning projects focus on one or more of three drivers of city success, according to Knight:
Talent: Ideas that help cities attract and keep the best and brightest.
Opportunity: Ideas that create economic prospects and break down divides.
Engagement: Ideas that spur connection and civic involvement.
