Dear Menlo Park City Council,

Greetings from Silicon Valley Community Foundation. I am emailing because SVCF is collaborating with several other organizations in the Bay Area to release a Request for Proposals to support Census 2020 education and outreach efforts of hard-to-count communities in the nine-county Bay Area. More detail is outlined below.

We thought the Menlo Park City Council might be able to share the below announcement with any networks or newsletters you manage? We are aware that your communications reach Bay Area organizations that serve hard-to-count populations and hope that more may learn about it with your support.

Thank you in advance for your partnership. Please let me know if you have any questions.


Request for Proposals
Census 2020: Everyone Counts!

Accepting proposals April 15 - May 31, 2019, RFP coming soon

A fair and accurate census count is essential to numerous aspects of civic life, from allocation of billions of dollars in federal funds in California alone, to political representation at all levels of government. When census information is not accurate, it threatens to muffle the voices of historically undercounted groups, including people of color, immigrants, low-income communities, and children. What's more, California faces several unprecedented challenges to a complete and accurate Census 2020 count, including significant underfunding of the U.S. Census Bureau, the proposed citizenship question, and a new online census questionnaire.

To minimize the undercount in our region, The Bay Area Census Funders Collaborative - including Silicon Valley Community Foundation, East Bay Community Foundation, Northern California Grantmakers and other funders in the region - will soon be accepting proposals to support Census education and outreach efforts to hard-to-count communities in the nine-county Bay Area. Everyone counts!

Proposals will be accepted April 15 through May 31, 2019 through online portal Apply SVCF<https://apply.siliconvalleycf.org/s_Login.jsp> and information sessions will be held throughout the Bay Area. Stay tuned for the RFP release. Learn more & sign up for information session here.<https://ncg.org/2020-census>
