Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge

Deadline- 14 October 2013

The Rockefeller Foundation has announced 100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge which aims to enable 100 cities to better address the increasing shocks and stresses of the 21st century. The mission of this program is to receive technical support and resources for developing and implementing plans for urban resilience.

For the purposes of this challenge, a city will be defined by a population with over 50,000 inhabitants with a municipal government, or other elected or appointed chief executive office uniquely assigned to govern that population. Applications representing regional or metropolitan areas are permissible, but one municipal government must serve as the lead organization in the challenge application process.

Eligibility & Criteria-

    Challenge applicants may include municipal governments or major institutions (e.g., a nonprofit organization, university, chamber of commerce, or research center) that have a predominant affiliation/association with the city and demonstrate collaborative partnership with a municipal government. Strong preference will be given to municipal government applicants, unless circumstances do not allow for a city to represent itself.
    All applicants will be required to submit a letter of support from the senior-most representative of their city’s government, whether elected or appointed.
    To be eligible for consideration, each applicant must agree to any and all legal terms and conditions of the challenge, which will be posted when we begin accepting full applications in August 2013.
