Afterschool providers are in an excellent position to help with the 2020 Census. All federal funding for 21st CCLC, Childcare, Title I and other supports essential to the children and families we serve are determined by the census.
In order to help federally funded afterschool programs engage their community in a conversation about the 2020 Census, we’re planning on emailing them our 2020 Census Toolkit, and then reaching out to a few programs individually in particularly hard-to-count areas.
We’ve included a copy of the email we’ll be sending to programs, as well as the toolkit. We encourage you to share this toolkit with anyone in your network as well, and welcome any feedback that you have. We have also included the link to sign up to become to partner with the Census. Let’s make afterschool count!
