 “The organizations enrolled in the Committeeman Support Program are now working on further enhancing their efforts, and they're doing a tremendous job. We're excited to see the progress they are making. Already effective organizations are doing even more while other organizations are now hosting regular monthly meetings for the first time and recruiting new volunteers to join their efforts,” said Chairman Del Mar. “As part of the program, our team is providing them the tools and assistance they need, including developing new websites for a number of organizations through the county so they have an online presence to further their efforts.”

Each of the program participants receive an initial stipend for enrolling in the program and are eligible for further funding. The Cook County Republican Party has already been actively fundraising for the program, including a fundraiser with Founder and President of Americans for Tax Reform Grover Norquist on Tuesday, and projects the fund to be upwards of $50,000 this election cycle.

As each organization advances towards certain milestones, their progress will be tracked on the program’s Scorecard. Their ratings will determine the funding they will receive from the Cook County Republican Party to further enhance their efforts. The first Scorecard will be completed on June 15th and released to the public on June 17th.
