GO BLUE! Colorado Dems, State Parties and DNC Announce Historic Investment Agreement
Denver, CO – This afternoon, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and state Democratic Parties across the country — including the Colorado Democratic Party — announced a historic agreement of greater investment in state parties over the next four years.
For Colorado, which has seen major Democratic victories in 2018 and 2020, this means an increase in funding and investment in the Colorado Democratic Party to be able to support staffing, voter outreach, and local Democratic candidates running up and down the ticket.
Morgan Carroll, Chair of the Colorado Democratic Party:
“As a former state party chair, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison understands how critical strong investment in state parties is to winning elections, so we are thrilled by this exciting and historic news. Working people in Colorado have seen that when they elect Democrats, Democrats deliver for them. We know the Republican Party will literally say and do anything to try and claw back power for their wealthy donors and to erode our democracy, and we’re not taking a single vote for granted going into 2022.
“This increased amount of funding and investment will go a long way in supporting our efforts to meet with voters and communicate Democratic accomplishments as we continue the work of building a better future for all.”
The agreement includes:
- $15.5 Million for State Partnership Program (SPP): The new agreement increases monthly SPP funding for 50 state parties and DC by 25% to fund critical party infrastructure including staff, tools, and programming in the states.
- $5.5 Million for State Party Innovation Fund Grants: These grants will ensure innovation and early organizing by putting more boots on the ground throughout the country to help elect Democrats up and down the ticket in 2022. The program includes $5 million in funding for all 50 state parties plus the District of Columbia, along with an additional $500,000 for Dems Abroad and the territories. These competitive grants will primarily be used to hire staff in state to develop and implement innovative programs tailored for each state.
