Our future depends on the actions we take today. Reducing health disparities in Northern California begins with a strong vision.

Census 2020 Region 1 Outreach Partner

The Center at Sierra Health Foundation is partnering with Sacramento Region Community Foundation, the Administrative Community Based Organization (ACBO) for California Census Region 1, a geographic region that includes 17 counties. To ensure an accurate count for the region, the ACBO is distributing grant funding for census outreach activities that will engage hard-to-count communities throughout the region.

The Center will award grants to support nonprofit organizations engaging in outreach activities that seek to increase census participation among hard-to-count populations in eight of the region’s counties: Colusa, Glenn, Lassen, Nevada, Plumas, Sierra, Sutter and/or Yuba. Planning, preparation and ACBO-sponsored training activities will take place in fall 2019 to early 2020, and outreach efforts will begin in early 2020.

The application due date was extended to October 4, 2019, at 1 p.m.
