The Civic Action Fund is a left-of-center voter mobilization group. It is a project of the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a left-of-center electoral advocacy nonprofit managed by the for-profit consulting firm Arabella Advisors. The Civic Action Fund operates in 12 separate battleground states with the stated goal of getting “low-propensity voters” to become “lifelong voters.”
Sixteen Thirty Fund registered Civic Action Fund as a trade name on February 26, 2019 in Washington, D.C. The trade name expires in 2021. 
Numerous staff and advisors to Civic Action Fund have associations to prominent Democratic politicians and liberal advocacy groups, including former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), the David Brock-founded super PAC American Bridge, and President Barack Obama’s political campaigns.
The Civic Action Fund is a project financially sponsored in the Sixteen Thirty Fund, a Washington, D.C.-based leftwing organization that began in 2018 promoting Democratic candidate across the country.  Civic Action Fund operates in a dozen politically contested states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin. 
The organization works with liberal politicians and organizations at the local level to get out the vote. It focuses on contacting “low propensity voters” from left-of-center constituencies to turn them out into reliable voters for left-of-center candidates and ballot propositions. 
The group works with other organizations at the local level to help them hone in on voter turnout among left-leaning groups historically unlikely to vote. It also provides year-around-funding to organizations at the local level for the purpose of keeping low-propensity voters involved in the process between elections. The only partnership it specifically lists on its website is with the Alliance for Youth Action, a left-of-center canvassing group. 
The Civic Action Fund’s senior staff come from backgrounds in Democratic activism and liberal politics.
