36 Recipients to Receive Nearly $4.1 Million for Census Outreach


Funds to Support Local Government and Nonprofit Organizations’ Efforts Towards a Full and Accurate Count in the 2020 Decennial Census

(April 1, 2019) Baltimore, MD – The 2020 Census Grant Program Panel today announced that 36 Maryland government and nonprofit organizations will receive funding as part of a census outreach program. The $4.09 million in awards will support efforts to ensure every Marylander completes their census form.

“We are funding proposals that support efforts to reach some of the most challenging segments of our population to increase census responses, and provide a full and accurate portrait of every community throughout Maryland,” said Planning Secretary Rob McCord. “Counting each person helps every one of us in Maryland.”

Recipients of the grants include local governments and nonprofits that applied for a portion of the matching funds.

The Census Grant Panel awarded grants to eligible applicants that demonstrated the capacity to conduct outreach activities throughout Maryland to:

  • Ensure a fair, accurate, and inclusive count for Maryland, and
  • Increase the response rate of hard-to-count communities and populations in Maryland.

"Our entire panel of volunteers was gratified to see so many local nonprofits and governments embrace the challenge of getting every single Marylander counted in 2020,” said Grant Panel Chairman Steven Jost. “This is an unprecedented commitment from our bipartisan state leadership. We're especially grateful for the expert advice and professional oversight of the grant program from the staff at the Department of Planning."
