The US Census is a national headcount that happens once every ten years. Census data helps the government decide how to distribute billions of dollars in federal funding for a wide range of social services, including housing, healthcare, and education. It is also used to calculate the number of congressional seats in each state, and to draw congressional boundaries. Local businesses and community organizations rely on census information to decide where to open new businesses and what services to offer.
In the Bay Area, the Korean/Korean American community faces challenges such as high poverty rates, physical and mental health needs, and a sizeable elderly population. An undercount in the 2020 Census means that our community will miss out on critical dollars over the next decade to support these vulnerable populations.
We need your help to get all Korean and Korean Americans civically engaged!
KACF-SF seeks proposals from Korean and Korean American serving organizations in the Bay Area to provide education, outreach, and technical assistance to the community to elicit participation in the 2020 Census.
KACF-SF encourages groups, associations, and organizations, including religious organizations, of all sizes to apply to help ensure a fair and accurate count. You need not be a 501(c)(3) to apply. Grant awards will range from $500 to $5,000 based on proposal, nonprofit status, reach, and impact.
Proposals are due Monday, December 2.
We are looking for any and all ideas and activities that will engage our Korean/Korean American (K/KA) community to participate in 2020 Census Survey. We invite you to get creative!
Examples of possible activities include, but are not limited to:
Take a look at the notes that came out of our October 19 Census Convening for more ideas of what you can do.
