The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University has chosen the SFMTA’s SFpark as one of 25 projects eligible for this year’s Innovations in American Government Award competition. SFpark was recognized for its ability to “utilize data analytics to enhance government performance” and “achieve a broad suite of social benefits.” Selected by a cohort of policy experts, researchers, and practitioners, four finalists and one winner of the Innovations in American Government Award will be announced in the fall.

The Innovations in American Government Awards was created by the Ford Foundation in 1985 to shine a light on effective government programs. Since its inception, over 400 government innovations across all jurisdiction levels have been recognized and have collectively received more than $22 million in grants to support dissemination efforts. Such models of good governance also inform research and academic study.
