New York State Census Equity Fund Awards $1.4 Million to Community Organizations for 2020 Census Outreach

The New York State Census Equity Fund (The Fund) is a collaborative of foundations that is housed and operated in The New York Community Trust. The Fund is working to ensure an accurate count of New York’s residents in the 2020 Census, and help secure a fair share of the more than $700 billion that the federal government is expected to distribute to state governments annually based on Census 2020 data. On Tuesday, December 5th, The New York Census Equity Fund announced its second round of grants, totaling $1,437,000, to 56 organizations to support efforts across the state to reach hard-to-count communities in the 2020 Census. In New York City specifically, a total of $344,000 was allocated to community-based organizations, several of whom are grantee partners of The New York Women’s Foundation.
