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.

This concert will be the culminating concert for our free weeklong music camp for immigrant youth. In this camp, the youth will form bands and learn how to play instruments (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, etc.), how to write original songs, and how to collaborate creatively. We make this camp as accessible as possible, supplying instruments, cultural supports, food and bus tickets to the youth. The camp is designed to help them use music to express what's in their hearts and on their minds, and this concert will be their opportunity to share their creative expressions with the community.
