JPMorgan Chase is evolving its “AdvancingCities Challenge” for 2021

JPMorgan Chase & Company has announced some changes for the next round of grants under its “AdvancingCities Challenge.” Launched several years ago, the annual competition sources innovation to drive systemic change in U.S. cities, helping support economic opportunity for more people by leveraging meaningful collaboration among private, public, and nonprofit leaders.

For 2021, the global giant is evolving its Challenge to source bold solutions that catalyze recovery and long-term prosperity for Black and Latina women, their families, and local economies. Through the program, JPMorgan Chase is inviting communities to apply for up to $5 million to support innovative, sustainable solutions that drive wealth creation and economic success of Black and Latina women, which is foundational to building more equitable communities. The proposals should address multidimensional, systemic challenges, leverage cross-sector leadership and collaboration, center the voice and lived experience of Black or Latina women, and drive systems change at the local level.
