Bloomberg Mayors Challenge Survey

U.S. cities with populations of 30,000 or more are invited to participate in the 2017 Bloomberg Philanthropies Mayors Challenge by describing an urgent challenge and how they will tackle that challenge in an innovative way.  Thirty-five Champion Cities will be awarded up to $100,000 to begin to bring their ideas to life. The grand prize winner will be awarded $5 million and four cities will each win $1 million to bring their ideas to life.

 

To assist Torrance in the Mayors Challenge proposal, we need your help.  Please complete the Mayors Challenge Survey in our effort to bring a new innovative idea to realization.
