The Knight Foundation is launching the Knight Cities Challenge for a third year in October.

The challenge offers $5 million in grant funding for the 26 Knight communities, which include Grand Forks. Submissions for the challenge will be accepted from Oct. 10 through Nov. 3, with winners announced in the spring of 2017, according to the Knight Foundation's website.

"We're looking for new ideas that can make impact in three areas that are crucial to building more successful cities-attracting and retaining talent, increasing economic opportunity and promoting civic engagement," the foundation's announcement states.

Applicants don't need to be from Grand Forks, but the project must take place in the community.

The 2016 Knight Cities Challenge winner from Grand Forks was Pete Haga, who was awarded $106,800 to offer New Americans access to a food truck and equipment to start a food service or restaurant.
