The Challenge’s goal is to identify opportunities to create immediate impact for residents of Marion County and support long-term improvements to how people get around Indianapolis.
A total of $100,000 in funding is available to test or deploy winning proposals in Indianapolis. Up to two pilots may be selected for funding with this demonstration funding pool. In addition, all Finalists will have their applications reviewed by groups at Ford Fund and Ford X, Ford’s incubator. Winners will have the chance to pitch to at least one of the two groups as well.
Terms of the award will be executed via a Statement of Work with the Winner(s), and all promising proposals will be considered for further partnership by Indianapolis and Challenge partners.
