Grants to Monterey County, California nonprofit organizations for outreach and education efforts that promote participation in the census among populations that are difficult to count. Funding is intended to ensure that all residents are included in the 2020 Census. Priority during the current round of pooled funding will be given to organizations focused on the education phase, which includes media and outreach efforts.
Hard-to-count populations are some of the most vulnerable, including low-income communities, immigrants, indigenous communities, the homeless, people of color, and children ages 0-5. In addition, most questionnaires will be collected online, making it difficult for households that lack digital access to participate
Application should include specific target populations and plans to educate and encourage participation in the 2020 census. Examples of possible activities include, but are not limited to:
- Education events or workshops for members of hard-to-count communities to learn about the 2020 census, the risks of an incomplete county, and the importance of participating in the census.
- Door-to-door canvassing to encourage households to complete the census form.
- Technical assistance for nonprofit organizations that are helping communities complete the census forms
- Census Ambassador Centers: questionnaire assistance centers set-up in locations identified as trusted spaces that are within census tracts and blocks with the highest rates of hard-to-count populations
- Language access to support the language access needs for HTC populations
- Innovative strategies
