Do you have an idea that could help Oakland deal with its biggest problems?

If you do, City Challenge Oakland would love to hear about it.

About City Challenge

City Challenge is an experiment in getting residents and the City to co-design solutions to some of our City’s toughest problems.

Here’s how it works…

1. Submit ideas

Between now and May 6, 2022, residents can submit their solutions to any or all of three main problems:

2. Vote on ideas

From May 6 through May 20, residents will be able vote for the best solutions.

The 20 most popular solutions will go to a panel of community judges, who will then select proposals to be implemented.

3. Implement winning ideas

If the judges select your idea, it will be approved for funding and implementation. You’ll then work with the City Challenge team to make your idea happen.
