Next Century Cities recently announced the new Next Generation Engagement Awards program. The awards will reward creative thinking on using broadband to increase civic engagement. Cities and their partners can propose a new project or app that addresses a local challenge, and we will grant winning cities up to $30,000 each – and technical assistance – to help make their plans a reality.
We held a webinar recently to discuss the program, the application process, and to give some examples of interesting projects from around the country. You can watch the webinar in its entirety below:
