Upcoming Knight Cities Challenge Q&As in Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, IN– The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation will hold two Q&As to discuss the Knight Cities Challenge, which is seeking new ideas to make Fort Wayne and the other 25 communities where Knight invests more vibrant places to live and work. The challenge is offering $5 million for innovative projects that answer the question: What’s your best idea to make cities more successful?

Knight will offer two sessions with information on the goals of the challenge, tips on preparing applications, and a chance to talk to Knight staff on how to craft a great submission. Many potential applicants are expected to attend, and press is invited to hear about the ideas Fort Wayne’s innovators are bringing to the table.

WHAT: Knight Cities Challenge Q&A sessions

WHO: Local innovators applying to the Knight Cities Challenge


Friday, October 17
7:30-9:00am at the Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne
555 E Wayne Street, Fort Wayne

Monday, October 20
6:00-8:00pm at Wunderkammer Company
3402 Fairfield Avenue, Fort Wayne

Applications for the Knight Cities Challenge opened on Oct. 1 and will close on Nov. 14. The challenge is open to innovators of all types: architects, activists, artists, city planners, entrepreneurs, students, educators, city officials, as well as governments and organizations.

The challenge has just two rules:
1) A submission may come from anywhere, but the project must take place in or benefit one or more of 26 Knight communities.
2) The idea should focus on one or all of three key drivers of city success:
·         Talent: Attract and keep the best and brightest.
·         Opportunity: Expand economic prospects and break down divides.
·         Engagement: Spur connection and civic involvement.

You don’t have to be a professional grant writer to apply and the initial application, available at, consists of just two questions. The challenge is designed to help spur civic innovation at the city, neighborhood, and block level, and all sizes in between.
