Thank you for your interest in applying to participate in the 2023 NLC Capstone Challenge Series. This program brings together NLC member cities and strategic partners to create solutions to member needs.
NLC’s Capstone and Enterprise Partners have submitted applications outlining proposed projects, informed by their expertise and history of working with cities. Based on member interest, NLC will match member cities with a strategic partner to work together on these projects and develop a solution over the next six months.
Each working group will consist of one strategic partner, one municipality (or a small group of municipalities, if applicable), and one NLC staff member as a liaison and resource. Working groups will work on the project together throughout the summer and fall, concluding by early 2024. The Series will culminate with an event where the group with the best project will receive an award.
Please review the project ideas and rank them, with 1 indicating highest interest. You only need to rank those that you are interested in participating in – please do not assign a ranking to projects that you do not want to work on.
