Get Out the Vote: Fairfield County’s Community Foundation (FCCF) is now accepting applications for a new civic engagement grants program. This new, nonpartisan initiative from FCCF is designed to fund efforts to increase voter registration and information access for all County residents, particularly those who are historically disenfranchised. FCCF’s Get Out the Vote (GOTV) program offers support to nonprofits to boost local efforts to engage underrepresented voters in Fairfield County. Organizations eligible to apply with FCCF must support voter registration in general, not just with select political parties or candidates.
