Nonprofits Lead the Count: Preparing Your Organization for the Census

January 16 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Nonprofits have everyday contact with the communities most at risk of being undercounted in the Census. In order to provide Census information to the thousands who pass through your doors, BCNM and GPNP have teamed up to bring you FREE educational opportunities to learn what you can do to be prepare for the 2020 Census.

Thursday, Jan. 16 from 9 a.m. – noon OR
Monday, Feb. 3 from 1 – 4 p.m. OR
Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 1 – 4 p.m.
Every 10 years, the United States conducts a Census of the entire population – a critical endeavor that determines congressional representation and allocates over $675 billion in federal funding to support schools, hospitals, infrastructure and community-based services. Nonprofit organizations rely on accurate Census data to inform decision-making for grants, programming, and overall community impact. As such, they are critical stakeholders that need to be engaged in mobilizing individuals to complete the 2020 Census questionnaire.
During this interactive and hands-on workshop, you will hear from officials at the U.S. Census Bureau, representatives from local government, and community partners about efforts underway in Pittsburgh and throughout Allegheny County
to increase participation in the 2020 Census. They will equip nonprofit organizations of all sizes with the right tools to become Census Hubs, including how to:
  • Use data to inform Census outreach strategies in your community
  • Educate your organization’s staff, clients and patrons about why the Census matters and how to combat misinformation
  • Identify resources available to engage and mobilize individuals to complete the 2020 Census
