This contracting opportunity 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.
