The Hometown Outreach Fund encourages cultural leaders from all walks of life to return to their hometowns to bring attention to the importance of civic engagement, to raise awareness surrounding issues important to their community and to motivate voter turnout. The Hometown Outreach Fund coordinates with regional organizations to bring people of recognition back to their hometowns to get out the vote during local elections. This dynamic forum is a means to motivate voter turnout and to build an informed, educated electorate for the 2018 midterm elections and beyond.
