In 2010, New York City’s self-response rate was less than 62%—compared a national average of 76%.
An undercount puts our fair share of more than $650 billion in federal funds and our political representation at stake!
NYC Census 2020 is closely partnering with the City University of New York (CUNY) and the New York City Council on a new Complete Count Fund to support census outreach and education around the city!
What does that mean? We’re looking for community-based organizations from across the five boroughs who want to ensure the communities they work closely with are counted. If your organization works with any of New York City’s historically undercounted populations, now is the time to apply for the New York City Complete Count Fund!
By volunteering with your Neighborhood Organizing Census Committee (NOCC), you’ll have the opportunity to canvass, phonebank, and text with your community to ensure that everyone is counted.
