Census 2020 Logo 1

Contra Costa County announces its second phase of Census 2020 outreach grants through a Request for Proposals (RFP). The second phase of funding is available to tax-exempt organizations, schools, and public agencies and will consist of rolling mini-grants for Census events to help ensure every person in Contra Costa County counts. 

The County seeks to fund grantees committed to ensuring a complete count of County residents with an emphasis on Hard-to-Count populations. The grants will fund organizations to host events between now and April 30, 2020 to engage and motivate hard-to-count residents around being counted in Census 2020. Grant amounts will range between $500 and $3,000. 

The grant funding was approved by the Board of Supervisors based on the recommendation of the County’s Census 2020 Complete Count Steering Committee to adopt the Request for Proposals (RFP) in two phases. This recognizes some smaller organizations may not be aware of the Census and in a position to apply until closer to the Census date (April 1, 2020). The Complete Count Steering Committee was appointed by the Board of Supervisors to help ensure a fair and complete 2020 Census count.
