California Deploys over $10 million of Non-Response Follow Up Funding to Double Down on 2,000 Census Tracts

Monday, August 31, 2020

SACRAMENTO – With just 30 days left to respond to the 2020 Census, the California Complete Count – Census 2020 Office (Census Office) announced today targeted outreach to motivate and activate Californians to fill out the form.

As the deadline to respond to the Census has been adjusted to September 30 by the U.S. Census Bureau, California has deployed on the ground unconventional tactics to get low responding tracts to take action.

“Time is running out to make an impact on the funding for the next 10 years for your community! Take a few minutes to complete the Census – it’s safe, secure and drives critical dollars into education and health care programs,” said Ditas Katague, Director of the California Complete Count – Census 2020 Office. “Everyone counts in the Census, regardless of background or immigration status. You have 30 days to make a difference.”
