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 the nine counties of the San Joaquin Valley: Kern, Kings, Fresno, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Stanislaus, San Joaquin and Tulare. Planning, preparation and SJVHF-sponsored training activities will take place December 2019 – January 2020, and strategic outreach efforts will begin by January 2020. Learn more.
