Ash Innovations Award for Public Engagement in Government

We recently heard from NCDD supporting member Archon Fung of Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government about an exciting new award for public engagement that we wanted to make sure our members knew about. The award is aimed at helping effective engagement practices grow and develop, and we hope some of you will apply. You can read more about the award below or find more information at www.innovationsaward.harvard.edu


Ash logoHarvard Kennedy School invites you to apply for the Roy and Lila Ash Innovations Award for Public Engagement in Government.

Administered by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, the Innovations in American Government Awards are given to programs that serve as examples of creative and effective government at its best.

This special Innovations Award 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. Applications are welcome from citizen engagement and participation programs, policies, and initiatives that encourage or expand public participation and promote collaborative problem-solving in government.

All units of government—federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial—within the United States, along with their partners, are eligible to apply.

The winner of the Roy and Lila Ash Innovations Award for Public Engagement in Government will receive a $100,000 grant to support replication and dissemination activities.

Applications and additional information for this special award and for the broader Innovations in American Government Awards are available now on the application website:  www.innovationsaward.harvard.edu.

Applications are due by June 20, 2014, so don’t delay!
