Census 2020 is around the corner. This once in a decade event is critical for Community Action and the families and communities we serve across the country. Community Action Partnership is committed to ensuring that the entire community is counted, and is joining forces with the Census Counts campaign to guarantee a fair and accurate census count in 2020.
What is the Census Counts Campaign?
Census Counts is a collaborative campaign involving more than 15 national organizations and dozens of community partners working together to make sure that the 2020 Census is fair and accurate. The campaign works to educate stakeholders and the public about the importance of a fair and accurate census to our communities, families, and children.

What is the role of Community Action Partnership?
Community Action Partnership is one of several national organizations serving as a national hub for the Census Counts campaign. Each national organization is representative of what is considered a “hard-to-count” population. Community Action is the lead representative for the low-income “hard-to count” population.
What can Community Action Agencies do now?
While the Census is still a year away, Community Action agencies can start laying down the ground work now to prepare their communities for the 2020 Census. Click here to visit our Census 2020 webpage where you can learn more and find resources for ensuring that everyone gets counted in 2020!
