Causeway Challenge Offers Up 20 $2,500 Grants to Make Chattanooga More Connected

(WDEF)  Chattanoogans can use their vision for the future to get some green.
     The local non-profit Causeway ponied up 20 grants worth $2,5000 apiece.
     They’re for anyone with an idea centered on connectivity.
     Ideas they’ve heard so far include finding volunteer work for high school students.
     James Chapman is Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Causeway.  He said, "I think that for a long time people may have been sitting on these ideas and have been waiting for this exact type of opportunity.  So to have people actually come into our space and sit down with us and ask us to pick their brains about how they can do better about making the city better connected is awesome."
     Causeway started three years ago as an online platform where people could post their causes online to raise funding, support or gather volunteers.
     Applications will be accepted until August 29th.
     You can fill out an application for the grant money at the new Causeway headquarters at 16 Patten Parkway every Wednesday in August between the hours of 12noon to 1:00pm.
