Organizations in the St. Louis region are invited to apply for funds to conduct outreach and education activities that encourage participation in the 2020 Census. The St. Louis Census Funders Group has established a pooled fund through the St. Louis Community Foundation to support coordinated efforts to get a complete and accurate count in next year's census.
This request for proposals aims to provide grant support for trusted community organizations to increase participation in hard-to-count communities. This opportunity is for organizations pursuing work within the eight-county St. Louis metro region (St. Louis County, St. Louis City, St. Charles, Jefferson, Franklin, Washington, Lincoln, and Warren).
The St. Louis Census Funders Group held an information session for interested organizations on Friday, September 20th.
