Do you have an idea that would make our City a better place?  A way the City could save money, or generate new revenue?  How about something that would save energy or save time?  The City of Los Angeles has created an Innovation Fund, and we want to hear from you.  The $1 million fund is designed to provide one-time pilot funds to City departments to test new ideas that could make the City work better.  We expect to fund projects that haven’t been tried in LA before, that increase efficiency, improve the quality of life for Angelenos, and that are feasible and measurable.

LA is the global capital of creativity – and we know that Neighborhood Council members have great ideas for how we could do our work better.  The City of Los Angeles Innovation and Performance Commission (IPC) invites you to submit ideas for how we can create a better Los Angeles.  To date, 23 submissions have received funding, including one to equip pothole and tree emergency service crews with GPS enabled-smartphones to improve dispatch speed and another to create a single, comprehensive system for all funding documents required by Neighborhood Councils.

Submit your idea at There is no deadline, but ideas will be evaluated in the order they were received.  For more information, please email Bianca Swan at or call (213) 978-1694Click here for a flyer.
