A collaborative of local and national funders have launched Miami-Dade Counts 2020, an outreach campaign to support census participation. Miami-Dade Counts 2020 is interested in funding efforts in Miami-Dade County to encourage full participation in the 2020 Census.
Grants will be awarded to nonprofit and governmental organizations in Miami-Dade County with thoughtful, culturally sensitive, innovative strategies for reaching communities that have historically low rates of participation in the Census.
