Encouraging Citizen Involvement

Amount Note:

Grants will be considered for one year's funding. No more than 10% of a grant may go to indirect costs (outside of those for general operating support).

Eligibility Note:

Applicants must apply through their affiliated institution. Those that wish to apply for a grant are required to first submit a letter of inquiry, which briefly describes (roughly in two to three pages) the proposed project's purpose, operation, target audience, timeline, costs, and anticipated impacts.

The Herb Block Foundation seeks to help ensure a responsible, responsive democratic government through citizen involvement. Proposals may focus on citizen education and greater voter participation in the electoral process. All projects must be nonpartisan and may not involve lobbying for specific legislation or candidates. In addition to providing grants in this area, The Herb Block Foundation has initiated an annual public policy lecture program featuring prominent speakers on issues of national importance.
