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.
Local community-based organizations (LCCC’s) and local bodies of government (LGCCCs) will be eligible for up to $25,000 per approved applicant.
