Census Equity Initiative Plan – April 2022

The Census Equity Initiative will continue the census collaborative that was created in the buildup to the 2020 decennial census. The focus of CEI is to ensure that census data is high quality and properly counts historically undercounted populations. CEI hopes to raise about $3.8 million per year through 2024 to support two main activities: (a) Addressing census policy and operations, and (b) Sustaining collaboration and aligned action. The initiative would incorporate a feedback system to adapt and improve CEI operations throughout the course of the initiative.
