Join us for an Information and Technical Assistance session for the New Haven Civic Innovation Prize! This session will review the criteria for the Prize and we will answer any questions you have about the application due February 13.

The New Haven Civic Innovation Prize awards up to $15,000 to the best student- or community-led venture or project focused on benefiting the City of New Haven.

The Prize aims to catalyze student- and community-led innovations that address, and are informed by, community priorities. Community members, students, or teams of students and community members who are working on projects in key areas of community development, particularly related to recovery from the health and economic crises causes by the COVID-19 pandemic, are welcome to apply.

The competition provides participants with constructive feedback from experienced professionals, mentorship from relevant experts, and chances to meet social entrepreneurs and civic leaders. The judges will award a total of $15,000 in prizes and may elect to allocate the prize amount to a single winner, or between two teams.
