About the Grantee

iCivics was founded in 2009 by Justice Sandra Day O’Connor with the goal to transform civic education using innovative games and resources. Today, nearly 200,000 teachers use iCivics to provide a meaningful civic education to more than five million students in all 50 states. However, as of 2020, only nine states and the District of Columbia require a full year of U.S. government or civics. CivXNow, a project of iCivics, will build a national coalition, support state and federal efforts, and launch a media campaign to restore U.S. civic health by making civic education a priority in all K-12 schools.
