Georgia Smart Communities Challenge

The Georgia Smart Communities Challenge is a first-of-its-kind opportunity for four winning communities of any size in Georgia to receive funding and support that enables those communities to envision, explore, and plan for their “smart” future. Communities will be given up to $50,000 in seed funding, community networking opportunities, and access to additional, unique resources to execute their projects. These unique resources include additional funding to work with Georgia Tech research partners, connections to industry experts, and access to technology solutions provided by our provider-partners.

Georgia Smart will be holding webinars and workshops throughout March and April to help communities prepare their proposals. Applications for the program are due on May 1, 2018, and winning communities will begin their one-year projects in August 2018.
