Democratic Party of Georgia and DNC Announce Historic Agreement

May 12, 2021

Agreement includes over $23 million in direct investments to state parties and grassroots infrastructure during 2022 election cycle

Today, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and state parties, including the Democratic Party of Georgia (DPG), announced a historic four-year agreement that will guarantee more investment in the state party than ever before. 

At a minimum, this investment will provide $23 million to state parties as part of Democrats’ 2022 midterm strategy. The contract includes a data sharing agreement that increases investment in down-ballot races, solidifies another four years of historic investment in Democratic data, and anchors the DNC and state parties as the central hub of the Democratic data ecosystem.

“Georgia is the premier battleground state in the country, and this investment from the DNC shows just how important our state will be in keeping and winning Democratic majorities at all levels of government,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “We know we have to organize year-round in every part of the state in order to win elections. This partnership will help DPG continue doing just that as we build off our historic successes of the last election cycle.”

Additional investments in the agreement include:

  • $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.
  • Reestablishes the Democratic Grassroots Victory Fund: The agreement is contingent on the Democratic state parties rejoining the joint fundraising agreement that propelled the DNC to record-breaking major donor fundraising over the last four years, and allows the DNC to collect up to $875,000 per individual per year.
