PARTNER WITH SEAP

POLICY SUPPORT

SEAP technical assistance provides innovative and rigorous policy support for Southern organizations. Together we will create bridges and overcome barriers that broaden economic power throughout the region and build a more equitable future. We assist in gathering data; performing research; linking policy analysts, organizers, and scholars; communicating policy; and identifying best practices.

MICROGRANTS

We support policy progress in many ways — through policy support, data and research, community engagement, and network-building. We also know that it costs to engage in policy. SEAP provides microgrants to organizations that wish to engage in a policy for the first time or in a new way. If you are interested in applying for a microgrant, please download and submit our application form.

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT​

At SEAP, we want to provide aid to fill the gaps in organizations that are doing great work for their community. Before we can offer you support, SEAP is devoted to learning more about your organization and community impact. Our team can visit your region to set up roundtables with similar organizations to hear concerns and challenges. Our 2-hour listening sessions help dissect the struggles and barriers within policy and leadership. SEAP’s goals are to learn about the challenges of communities and the organizations serving those communities, and policy infrastructure to meet those challenges.

INTERNSHIPS

SEAP strives to give students, graduates and young professionals a chance to learn about the work that we do. Through our 10-week, paid internship program, we provide local and remote interns an opportunity to build their research skills and professional experience. Ideal candidates:
