The program will prioritize non-profits that serve high-risk/vulnerable populations and advance opportunities and support for communities of color.

Timeline: Due October 15, 2020.

The Census Equity Fund of Oregon is currently accepting applications for Census Assistance Centers (CACs) serving Hard to Count (HTC) populations across the state. CACs provide an effective on-the-ground presence for the 2020 census in order to raise public awareness, deliver trustworthy information, and provide options for self-respondents to receive questionnaire support. CACs are one component of a broader #WeCountOregon plan.

 

Awards will generally range between $20,000-$40,000, with a maximum of $65,000. Funding is intended to reach across the state, ideally with at least one CAC in each county. Full RFP

To apply, please submit the appropriate form and attachments via email to CensusCAC@unitedway-pdx.org.

Applications for funding must be received by 11:59 pm on Wednesday December 4th, 2019.
