Welcome to the 2019 My LA2050 Grants Challenge

LA2050 is a community-guided initiative driving and tracking progress toward a shared vision for the future of Los Angeles. With the support of 30,000 Angelenos, we’ve outlined an aspirational vision centered on five goals and 60+ metrics tracked over time to evaluate how Los Angeles is faring.

The My LA2050 Grants Challenge is an open call for ideas to make LA the best place to learn, create, play, connect, and live.

A total of $1,000,000
will be awarded among 10 organizations to implement their proposals. Each organization will receive a total of $100,000 and partnership from LA2050 to support its efforts.

Now, we’re asking for your help to turn the LA2050 goals and metrics into action.

Submit your idea by Friday, March 29, 2019 (5pm Pacific Time).
