Co-hosted by the Funders' Committee for Civic Engagement and Funders Together to End Homelessness
After years of challenges, the 2020 Census headcount is complete. However, the work to ensure a fair and accurate census isn’t over, especially when it comes to making sure people experiencing homelessness are fairly counted and equitably represented as local and state governments engage in resource allocation and redistricting. Given the importance of the count for funding, policy decisions, and redistricting, funders must understand and engage in the post-count processes. to amend the data now and improve the process for future counts.
During this webinar, we will explore what happened during the 2020 Census count, the status of data analyses efforts, and strategies to improve the data, specifically among people experiencing homelessness. We’ll also hear how funders can support operations to impact the quality of the Census data, engage around fair redistricting, and ensure people experiencing homelessness are part of that assessment.
