Important Updates

On October 17, 2022, we launched a coordinated announcement of the CIVIC 2022 teams. With your help, we can amplify awareness of the teams funded under this round of the Civic Innovation Challenge. This has the potential to bring more federal funders to the table and get people in your community excited about your work. The Announcement Guide below will provide sample text, tweets, and strategies for getting the most out of this push!

Quad Charts are due on November 2nd. Please use the template below and send to Rose on Slack.
