Native Vote and Funding Opportunities 

The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) is committed to American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) exercising their right to vote in all tribal, local, state, and federal elections through nonpartisan activities and education. To meet this commitment, we rely on our tribal nations, partner organizations, and tribal citizens to become actively engaged in the campaign.

 Background: Native Vote is a nonpartisan initiative focused on Voter Registration and Get-Out-The-Native Vote, Election Protection, Education, and Data Collection. This initiative was created to encourage the AI/AN population to exercise their right to vote and works to protect voting rights across the country. Tribal nations are America’s first governments, and Native Vote works to ensure all tribal citizens participate in shaping the future of their communities.
