Rural Power Lab Grants Program

Candidates and their teams need hubs of organized volunteers to win, and progressive and Democratic activists in outside of urban areas are hungry for connection and support. That’s why we started the Rural Power Lab program.
Rural Power Lab, now a project of Contest Every Race, gives grants to non-urban county Democratic party organizations and offers training, coaching and tech tools to help grow the capacity of these critical rural organizations.
“Your program has given us what we needed: access to new concepts, training for outreach, messaging through texts, and the cash necessary to implement the programs we have instituted through your program. Our progress has taken off at a much faster pace than we could have ever expected”
- Bill Crawford, Waushara County, WI

We are currently seeking new applicants to partner with us through the end of 2024.
