2001 Semifinalists

April 30, 2001
The Innovations program announces the selection of 99 semifinalists from among 1298 applicants to the 2001 Innovations in American Government Awards Program.  Brief descriptions of each program are included, and links have been provided to the programs where possible. These descriptions are summarized from the applications submitted by the semifinalists.  The information has not been verified by the Innovations Program. 

From the 99 semifinalists, 15 finalists will be chosen in the late summer. The winners will be selected by the National Selection Committee in October. Each of the finalists will be eligible for an award of $20,000, and the winners will each receive an additional $80,000. If you would like more information on any of these programs, contact the Innovations program at
