Knight Green Line Challenge

The new Green Line is here, connecting the diverse neighborhoods between the downtowns of St. Paul and Minneapolis! Now, Knight Foundation is looking for great projects that will make Central Corridor neighborhoods in St. Paul even more vibrant places to live, work, play and visit.

The Knight Green Line Challenge sought ideas to make the neighborhoods surrounding the Green Line more vibrant places to live and work. In 2014 and 2015 the challenge distributed more than $1 million to community projects. Details of the winning projects are listed on this site. The challenge is now closed, but the Knight Cities Challenge and the Knight Arts Challenge continue to seek ideas to make St. Paul even more successful. 

If you have a good idea that you believe fits Knight’s focus in St. Paul you can also apply online, or contact interim program director George Abbott at
