The Google.org Impact Challenge Cleveland rallies the community around bold ideas to make Cleveland's neighborhoods even better.
A panel of advisors helped us select four nonprofits with innovative ideas for growing economic opportunity in the Cleveland area, and each will receive $50,000 in grant funding as well as Google training. The public has now voted for the cause they believe has the most promise, and the People's Choice winner will receive an additional $50,000.
