Apply Now for the Innovations in American Government Awards
Applications are now being accepted for the $100,000 Innovations in American Government Awards.
Offered by Harvard Kennedy School's Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, 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.
