About The i-team

Launched in 2017, the Austin i-team uses a proven innovation approach to work with partners both inside and outside of city government to deeply understand issues and develop new approaches to solving urban challenges. The team is currently working to improve the city's homelessness systems. The i-team is supported by the City of Austin and a grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies.

 

Bloomberg Philanthropies supports i-teams in more than 20 cities in four countries. Multi-year grants are awarded to cities to create in-house i-teams to help city leaders innovate effectively and tackle critical challenges. The i-teams bring new problem-solving tools and techniques to cities to deliver results for residents across multiple issue areas. The i-teams program is part the American Cities Initiative, a suite of investments that empower cities to generate innovation and advance policy that moves the nation forward.
