Commission certifies Jill Stein eligible to receive federal matching funds (2024)

July 1, 2024

On June 26, 2024, the Commission certified that Jill Stein is eligible to receive federal matching funds in connection with seeking the Green Party nomination for president for 2024.

To become eligible for matching funds, candidates must submit Candidate and Committee Agreements and Certifications as well as raise a threshold amount of $100,000 by collecting $5,000 in 20 different states in amounts no greater than $250 from any individual. Other requirements to be declared eligible include agreeing to an overall spending limit, abiding by spending limits in each state, using public funds only for qualified campaign-related expenses, keeping financial records, and permitting an extensive campaign audit.

Based on documents received on June 3, 2024, Jill Stein and Jill Stein for President 2024 (JSFP) fulfilled the agreement and certification requirements and contributions from the following states were verified for threshold purposes: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. All of the materials included with this submission may be viewed here. Based on Stein’s initial threshold submission, the Commission has certified to the United States Treasury that Jill Stein and JSFP are entitled to an initial payment of $100,000. Once declared eligible, candidate committees may submit additional matching fund requests to the Commission monthly by dates established in the Federal Register notice at 88 Fed. Reg. 31265 (May 16, 2023).

The presidential public funding program is financed through the $3 check-off that appears on individual income tax returns. The program has two elements: matching payments to participating candidates during the primary campaign and grants available to nominees to pay for the general election campaign.
