Coincidental with the 2nd grant cycle of 2022, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation seeks to support voter registration and voter education partnerships in its focus neighborhoods. Given the importance of reliable and trustworthy information about voter registration and participation processes, the Foundation is entertaining proposals for support of partnerships to provide these efforts in the aforementioned neighborhoods in Milwaukee. Successful applicants will have specific and written agreements with organizations that operate in these neighborhoods and bring to the table experience and skills in successfully helping neighborhood residents to register to vote, education about the process of voting in all ways that neighborhood residents may utilize and education about the issues that most matter to the voters and the neighborhoods in which they reside.

Focus neighborhoods

Amount available

A total of $50,000 is available for all grants to support these partnerships.
