Cook County seeks community groups to help with census count


Cook County has allocated $1 million for efforts to reach hard-to-count populations in the 2020 census.

The census has identified several areas in Cook County where the census response rate has been low. County officials are seeking community-based groups and local government bodies to help with outreach and education and are allocating up to $25,000 per group to help.

The first round of applications is due October 1, 2019, the second round is due Jan. 1, 2020, and the third is due April 1, 2020. Please click here for the story on NBC Chicago.
