The University of Chicago is looking for new ways to reduce youth violence in Chicago, and it's awarding up to $1 million for the best ideas.
The UChicago Crime Lab announced Tuesday that it is launching a design challenge to fund innovative ideas that can keep Chicago safer. Supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and Get In Chicago, the crime lab will fund projects up to $1 million each.
The design challenge is calling on non-profits who work with students ages 13-18 in communities with high crime rates. The deadline to submit a letter of interest is March 2.
