Smart city grant challenge

The Smart Cities Council is now accepting applications for next year’s Readiness Challenge Grant.

The challenge is open to cities, counties, states, provinces and regional authorities in Canada, Mexico and the United States that want to apply smart technologies to further innovation, inclusion and investment.

Each grant recipient will receive a year’s worth of free mentoring; a custom-designed, on-site Readiness Workshop; membership in the Smart Cities Leadership Circle; and other technology products and services.

Previous winning proposals included GIS initiatives, smart utilities, mobility and transportation improvements.

The simple process of applying can get a city moving toward a comprehensive technology plan,  Smart Cities Council Chairman Jesse Berst said.

“Our past entrants confirm there’s plenty to gain by filling out the application,” Berst said. “This process alone has helped many communities move their smart city efforts into the fast lane.”

Applications are due Dec. 15, and winners will be announced Jan. 23, 2018.
