It is time for change. It is time for innovative solutions.

Ashoka and the Brookings Institution are launching a large scale effort to foster a new generation of structural innovations to address systemic racism in the housing market.

We will be mapping the most promising innovations from across the country and inviting innovators to participate in a collaborative Challenge with up to $1 million of prize funds.

If you have innovative market-based or policy-based innovations, if you are interested in supporting change, if you are interested in learning more, we would love to hear from you.
