This group has  organized to:

  • Create the only collaborative state-wide funding, resource hub and web portal for information, materials and resources customized to Florida’s needs for the 2020 Census.

  • Raise funding via a Pooled Census Fund for re-granting to community- based organizations to support vital Census 2020 outreach and messaging in Florida. Funds raised will be re-granted to non-profit organizations for outreach, education and messaging to propel a robust and accurate 2020 Census count for Florida and to mitigate the risk of a large under count in our state;

  • Align with and leverage the investments that national foundations and private donors outside of Florida have made in Florida in recognition of the critical role Census 2020 will play in fast growing states like Florida;

  • Execute an efficient work plan to cover the remaining significant gaps in Hard to Count communities Florida.

  • Support a robust and accurate Census 2020 count for Florida.

THE STAKES ARE HIGH: AN ACCURATE COUNT IS ESSENTIAL FOR FLORIDA TO RECEIVE ITS FAIR SHARE OF REVENUE FROM THE US GOVERNMENT.
