RE: DEADLINE EXTENDED! Innovations in American Government Awards
There is still time to apply for the $100,000 Innovations in American Government Awards!
Offered by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, the Innovations Award is the nation’s premier award for the public sector. It recognizes programs that demonstrate creative and effective government at its best.
All units of government — federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial — from all policy areas are eligible to apply for recognition.
This year, the Ash Center is also offering the Roy and Lila Ash Innovations Award for Public Engagement in Government, a special Innovations Award that will recognize government-led innovations that demonstrate novel and effective approaches to increasing public engagement and participation in the governance of towns, cities, states, and the nation.
The top winner of the Innovations in American Government Award and the winner of the Roy and Lila Ash Award will each receive a $100,000 grant to support replication and dissemination activities in 2015. Top finalists will also receive monetary grants.
The three-question initial application and additional information are available at:
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY JUNE 27, 2014.
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
