2018 Smart Cities Council Readiness Challenge Grant

Accelerating smart city efforts with mentoring and benefits from leading experts and organizations

Each year, the Smart Cities Council donates coaching, workshops, products, services and more free benefits to five communities in North America. The innovative, interactive application helps applicants build and refine their vision. The 2018 grant program was expanded to include all levels of government, from states and provinces to cities and regional authorities.

The winners each receive a year’s worth of free mentoring, products and services worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, a custom, on-site Readiness Workshop and worldwide publicity.
