Student Voter Registration Day (SVRD): Request for Proposals from Community-Based Organizations
NYC Votes, the voter engagement initiative of the NYC Campaign Finance Board, seeks to partner with local nonpartisan community-based organizations to facilitate and host SVRD in schools throughout NYC.
SVRD is an annual one-day program designed to register and educate students about civic participation and promote a voting culture among our youngest eligible citizens. SVRD is a joint collaboration of NYC Votes, community-based organizations, the New York City Council, and City Hall.
Since the inaugural SVRD on March 20, 2015, over 10,000 NYC students have been registered through this program. While the ultimate goal of SVRD is to register students to vote, SVRD facilitators and volunteers also work with students to identify and explore the issues that are most important to them, helping them connect voting to making an impact on those issues.
Organizations will be selected based on their organizational capacity, demonstrated ability to conduct nonpartisan voter engagement activities and/or youth outreach, and ability to meet the program requirements. The program requirements are listed in the application form, which can be found here. Organizations that are selected will receive a grant of $2,000 per school.
Applications are due April 12th, 2018. Organizations will be selected by April 18th, 2018
