New Orleans Citizen Participation Proj. Competes for a $50,000 grant!

The New Orleans Citizen Participation Program is competing in the Pepsi Refresh challenge for a $50,000 grant. Bringing these funds to New Orleans will help us to complete the final stages of this project which will empower citizens throughout our city to have a voice in city government policies and decisions that impact their city, their neighborhoods and their lives.  You can vote once per day per email address and it takes less than 60 seconds to cast your vote. The steps to help us win this grant are very simple:

1. Go to and sign up using the “Join Pepsi Refresh Everything” link located on the lower left side of the page.  All you need is an email address.

2. Vote for NOLACPP

3. Spread the word among your friends and networks — please share this as widely as possible (your email contacts, through Facebook, Twitter, etc. — there are icons on the site to do these), because the competition will be strong and we need every vote we can get every single day.

4. Return every day during the month of March to vote for NOLACPP.

Thank you for your support.  With your help we can bring this money to New Orleans and give our people a voice in our future.
