The Arc Tank – Are you an Innovator?

We are excited to announce that Eastern Bank is co-sponsoring the first ever Arc Tank competition!

The Northeast Arc and the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation want your ideas to identify innovative concepts to help positively disrupt the system to improve the lives of persons with intellectual disabilities and/or autism and their families. They are looking for out-of-the-box ideas and people who can imagine possibilities, be creative and who want to change the status quo.

On November 15, 2017, the Northeast Arc is awarding up to a total of $200,000 through the Changing Lives Fund, to one or multiple innovative ideas, during the inaugural The Arc Tank competition.

Any person, organization or group may apply for consideration to The Arc Tank. Ideas must be innovative, progressive, sustainable, and have significant societal impact. Ideas must be consistent with the mission of the Northeast Arc: supporting people with disabilities to become active and involved members of their community.

Plus, Quincy Miller, President of Eastern Bank, has been chosen as a member of the expert panel for this year’s competition!

All applications are due no later than September 29, 2017. For more on application requirements and overall details about the competition, click here.

So put on your thinking caps and please feel free to forward this to other innovative and creative thinkers!
