Hot off the presses! We are excited to present new tools to support philanthropic and field work to reach a fair and accurate census count. Come learn about the Counting for Dollars Project, an effort to identify all federal financial assistance programs that rely on decennial census-derived data to guide the geographic distribution of funds, and the Hard-to-Count Mapping Project that helps identify areas with significant numbers of people most likely to go uncounted. You will learn how to access and use this valuable data to inform your strategy, support your grantees, and invest your resources as you prepare for Census 2020. In addition, we will share any breaking news to be sure you are up-to-date on challenges for funding, design and implementation of the census.
Moderated by Karen K. Narasaki, Bauman Foundation [bio]
