Civic Engagement Research Fund

 

IPCE uses available funding to support research projects on civic engagement. The Institute works to enhance civic engagement through research, public discourse, and education while promoting the use of technology to improve government and advance democracy in the United States.

In particular IPCE is looking to support research that furthers understanding about effective strategies or tools that help:

  • Citizens better understand the policymaking process;

  • Citizens become more involved in policy debate or deliberation;

  • Government become more responsive to citizens;

  • Government, non profits, and civic institutions use technology to engage and connect citizens (including those with disproportionately lower access to technology than the public at large) with government and/or improve service delivery;

  • Community development efforts or local community change initiatives use civic engagement to enhance effectiveness or increase the overall impact of programs.
