Knight Cities Challenge 2017 kicks off today!

The Knight Cities Challenge is a battle for the best ideas to improve local communities. $5,000,000 in grants are up for grabs in 26 cities, including San Jose. We have done quite well in this competition in previous rounds. Earlier this year, $100k was given to create a Post Street Night Market and another $100k went to create MayFeria at the Mexican Heritage Plaza.

Applications will be accepted through November 3rd at

Each submission should pertain to one or more of the following three themes:
  • Talent - what will allow us to attract and keep talented people?
  • Opportunity - how can we expand the economic prospects of our community?
  • Engagement - what will spur civic connection and involvement?
Funding is provided by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Head over here and help make San Jose a better place!
