Policy Alert: Encourage Your State Senator to Support the Complete Count Grant Program

Last Thursday, Senator Sal DiDomenico filed a $5 million budget amendment (FY2020-SE-14) to the State Senate’s version of the budget to support the Complete Count Grant Fund. The Fund would support direct outreach by community-based nonprofits during the 2020 Census. MNN encourages nonprofits to reach out to their state senators to ask them to support this amendment. Nonprofits are trusted messengers and will play a key role in reaching hard-to-count communities during the 2020 Census. The participation of these communities is critical to making sure Massachusetts receives adequate federal funding and political representation in the next decade.
