Thriving Neighborhood Challenge

Thu, May 10, 2018 12:00 PM – Fri, Jun 22, 2018 12:00 AM Thriving Neighborhood Challenge

Thu, May 10, 2018 12:00 PM – Fri, Jun 22, 2018 12:00 AM

Calling all community creators, imaginative implementers, and block builders: do you have an idea that will make your neighborhood a healthier, happier, and more resilient place to live? Then, the People’s Planning Academy invites you to submit your idea for a chance to win $2,500 to make it happen!

Potential projects should be aimed at improving the quality of life in your neighorhood, fall within one of the eight Thrive Indianapolis categories: 1) Energy, 2) Natural Resources, 3) Food + Urban Agriculture, 4) Waste + Recycling, 5) Built Environment, 6) Public Health + Safety, 7) Transportation + Land Use, or 8) Economy, and be led by residents in teams of two or more.

The Thriving Neighborhood Challenge application process will be open throughout the months of May and June and will closed on June 22nd at 11:59pm. Following this deadline, teams will be selected to attend two training sessions in late summer featuring tailored discussions relating to their projects led by resiliency specialists. Following these trainings, teams will participate in an intensive two-day workshop, working with city staff and resiliency experts to further develop their ideas. The workshop will culminate in each team pitching their idea to resiliency experts and the public. Four finalists will be chosen to advance to the final competition, where they will present their idea to the community at a city-wide event on Friday, October 5th. The winning team will be awarded $2,500 to implement their idea.

The Thriving Neighborhood Challenge is brought to you by the People’s Planning Academy, a project of the Department of Metropolitan Development, and the Office of Sustainability, in partnership with a grant by the National League of Cities.
