Atlanta City: One Challenge
Ford will bring its next City:One Challenge to Atlanta. The crowd-sourcing platform, created by Ford, helps cities identify mobility solutions designed to address systemic mobility inequity, accessibility, safety and sustainability issues. It offers up to $150,000 in grants to startups and entrepreneurs to pilot mobility solutions with Atlanta residents.
The Atlanta City:One Challenge will focus on addressing income inequality and its impact on safety and access to mobility, particularly for women, aging adults, students, and people with disabilities.
Sponsored by AT&T, Delta Air Lines, the Metro Atlanta Chamber, and Novelis, the program is administered in part by student fellows from local colleges and universities, and proposals will be accepted May–June 2023. Winners will be chosen by December 2023, and mobility pilots are expected to deploy in Atlanta neighborhoods by summer 2024.
Since 2018, City:One has distributed more than $1 million in grant funding to 15 mobility pilots across the country.
