Democracy Voucher Outreach Fund

The Democracy Voucher Outreach Fund is an opportunity that was established to increase diversity and representation of Democracy Voucher usage and achieve greater equity for underserved communities. 

The Democracy Voucher Program has budgeted a total of $225,000 to award to 501(c)(3) community-based organizations to conduct outreach to underserved communities in Seattle. Of the overall budget, $150,000 is dedicated to organizations focusing on lawful permanent resident enrollment and education with the intention of:

  • Promoting civic engagement in underserved communities by educating residents about the Democracy Voucher Program.
  • Providing program education and enrollment to lawful permanent residents with a high degree of cultural competency.
  • Removing barriers to the program by providing in-language program education and distributing translated program materials.
