The Community Civic Engagement Program will provide funding, resources, and training to help clinics across the country offer voter registration and education to their patients.

Community health centers (CHCs) serve more than 29 million Americans and provide a wide range of services beyond traditional primary care, including health education and case management. As trusted resources in their communities, CHCs are uniquely well-positioned to help diverse patient populations register and overcome voting barriers.

By expanding voter registration into our nation's most far-reaching institutions, we're building a more inclusive democracy that truly reflects the diverse needs and interests of our communities.

The application deadline for the Community Civic Engagement Program is May 16.
