Funding for Local Outreach

GET FUNDING TO MAKE SURE YOUR COMMUNITY COUNTS IN THE 2020 CENSUS.

Greater Tacoma Community Foundation invites tribes, local government, organizations, associations, coalitions, and collaborative networks with trusted relationship in hard-to-count communities to apply for grants that support outreach and communications about the 2020 Census.

The 2020 census is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to inform data that directly affects everyone in Pierce County. These funds can be used to include census information in your existing community work.

You know your community and its needs best. GTCF is ready to support your work in ensuring every resident of Pierce County is informed, engaged, and valued in the census process.
