Last week to apply for Innovations in American Government Award

Do you have or do you know of a creative and effective government program or initiative? If so, there is only one week left to submit an application for the Innovations in American Government Award.

Administered by the Ash Center at Harvard Kennedy School, the Innovations Award is given to programs that serve as examples of creative and effective government at its best.

This year, the Center’s Innovations Program will also continue to identify and promote promising government efforts and partnerships through the Bright Ideas program.

All units of government — federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial — from all policy areas are eligible to apply for recognition.

The top winner of the Innovations in American Government Award will receive a $100,000 grant to support replication and dissemination activities. Top finalists will also receive monetary grants.

The short initial application and additional information are available at
