DFL Outreach and Inclusion Reimbursement Program

The DFL Outreach and Inclusion Reimbursement Program provides funds to support efforts by party units and community caucuses to increase political participation in underserved and underrepresented communities.

There is money set aside to be shared by organizing units in each congressional district, as well as for community caucuses in good standing to use on statewide initiatives. These grants do not replace regular fundraising, instead, they are there to support new efforts to engage communities.


The Process

Fill out the application in its entirety and submit it below on behalf of an Organizing Unit, CD, or Community Caucus.
  • For the best chance of approval, the application should be submitted at least the quarter prior to your program start.
  • After submission, you will receive an automated response confirming your application was received.
