White House—Smart Cities Council (SCC) Challenge Grants

As part of the White House Smart Cities initiative, the SCC will award five challenge grants to help five American cities apply smart technologies to improve urban livability, workability, and sustainability. For each of the five winning cities, the SCC will deliver a tailored one-day Readiness Program during the 2017 calendar year. Members of the SCC will also deliver numerous additional high-tech benefits to each of the five cities. Eligible cities must have more than 100,000 residents, but they may combine with neighboring cities to reach that population threshold. All applications for this program are due on Saturday, December 31, 2016. Winners will be selected and announced by Tuesday, January 31, 2017. For more information, visit the Smart Cities Council Challenge Grants website.
