Social Innovation Grant Application
The City of Austin identified several priority outcome areas to focus its efforts on through 2023, which are laid out in the Strategic Direction (link below). We know that these challenges are complex, affect our entire community, and that the City organization can’t address them alone.

We also know that social entrepreneurs in Austin are developing innovative solutions to address these challenges -- solutions that could work alongside the City’s efforts and make our collective impact even stronger. That’s why the City's Office of Innovation is investing $15,000 each in up to six Austin Impact Hub 2019 Accelerator participants to further develop their solutions and create evidence around how they may work in a municipal context.

If you think your solution might align with the City’s strategic efforts -- specifically those pertaining to the Strategic Direction 2023 Economic Opportunity and Affordability outcome area -- we encourage you to apply. To do so, please answer the questions below.
