Community Innovation Program

You’ve told us that today’s community needs and complex challenges require new thinking and new approaches. But, the day-to-day pressures of work – both operational and financial – make it hard to step back, take risks and engage the community to think bigger and think differently about tough problems.

Our Community Innovation programs are meant to be in your corner – to inspire and support you in creating innovative solutions to challenges in your community.

Seek funding to do the work of creating an innovative solution through our Community Innovation Grants or get the recognition you deserve for your track record of innovative solutions with the Bush Prize for Community Innovation.

Think bigger, think differently. Together we can break through our toughest problems.
