Funding Opportunity: Public-Sector Programs Improving Economic and Social Mobility

The Innovations in American Government Awards are heralded as the premier public-sector honors in the nation and are given to programs that serve as examples of creative and effective government at its best. Applicants will be judged on the Innovations in American Government Awards’ criteria of novelty, effectiveness, significance, and transferability, as well as the applicants’ impact on issues of economic and social mobility, inequity, and stratification.

The $50,000 top prize is open to programs at all levels of government—federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial—from within the United States. Finalists will also receive monetary grants.
