Bloomberg Philanthropies offers $45 million in grants to help cities become more innovative

NEW YORK, N.Y. - American cities looking to be more innovative in how they address local issues can now get a helping hand from former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's charitable foundation.

Bloomberg Philanthropies on Wednesday is announcing that it's putting $45 million into Innovation Delivery grants. The grants are to help cities create teams that use data and other tools to come up with ideas for how to tackle problems.

The foundation initially rolled out the Innovation Delivery model in five cities which used the process to come up with ideas on a range of issues. In the second round, the foundation expects to select 10 to 15 cities.

The application deadline is Oct. 6 and grantees are expected to be named by the end of the year.
