After the top 50 Quarter-Finalists are announced in April, the America’s Best Communities team will work diligently to connect you, as the mentor company, with a community that best aligns with your organization.

As an AAC mentor, an organization then provides its “adopted” community financial support – $15,000 and strategic and go-to-market advice, by first identifying a point of contact within your organization, who is available to provide guidance to the community for the duration of the contest period. Then you will meet regularly with the team throughout the term of the contest to coach, mentor and guide.

The support given through the AAC program will help one community with a vision, dream big, improve lives, and ultimately reach their goal of the $3 million grand prize for transformative economic development in their community.
