The City of Greensboro is at a crossroads and needs your input.
It has launched a competition for proposals and plans spurring economic growth in Greensboro. The economic catalyst challenge is part of the US Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration's (EDA) Strong Cities Strong Communities (SC2) grant that the City received in 2012.
You and your proposal and plan for Greensboro will be the
mortar that cements the ‘building blocks’ of the City’s future.
|Since 2012, EDA has enacted program changes that have affected the timeline of the competition. All needed information can be found on this new SC2 website. The "Get Involved" section on the home page is the best place to begin.
To submit a proposal for this challenge, visit the new SC2 website and register to participate by July 24. Your proposal must be submitted via that website by September 22. The website also offers guidance about the submission process, deadlines, revised EDA rules of the competition, and prize money breakdowns.
In May 2015, a winner will be selected. An evaluation panel, consisting of business leaders throughout Greensboro and a City Council liaison, has been selected by City officials to oversee the competition, rate proposals and choose the winners of both phases.
