Citywide Innovation Fund

Innovation Fund Graphic

The Innovation Fund was created in 2013, with the original goal to inspire City employees to think creatively, take risks, and identify solutions that fall outside of usual business practices. The fund was active from FY 2013-14 through FY 2015-16. While the program was operating, 271 projects were proposed by employees with Council funding $2.7 million for 66 projects. Employees from 23 bureaus submitted proposals and 16 bureaus had one or more projects funded.
