The census happens once every 10 years and our response in the #2020Census will shape our community’s future. When we respond, we help bring political representation. We also help bring in money to our community for schools, health care, libraries, roads and more.
United Way for Greater Austin is collaborating with partners in Central Texas to ensure everyone is counted. We have awarded close to $400K funds to organizations to educate and encourage census participation and are providing trainings on a regular basis, sharing the basics of the census and empowering participants with tools to help others get counted.
Let’s all be involved!
• Sign up to participate in a Census Ambassador Training led by United Way for Greater Austin staff.
• Refer people to call 2-1-1 for any census questions. 2-1-1 is a phone line that is confidential, multilingual and available 24/7.
