Planning

We are funding community outreach!

The City of Long Beach is seeking to fund nonprofit organizations and partnerships to conduct activites that will ensure a complete count of Long Beach residents, especially our Hard-to-Count communities. Most grants will range between $1,000 and $20,000; amounts outside of this range may also be awarded based on level of need. 

If your organization is interested in conducting census outreach, education, or promoting access to the census, contact Long Beach RFQ Services by email at RFQPurchasing@longbeach.gov, or by phone at (562) 570-6200, and let them know you are interested in learning more about the 2020 Census Community Outreach Services (CM20-023) opportunity. 


Long Beach Complete Count Committee (LB CCC)

 
  • More about the Long Beach Complete Count Committee

    The 2020 Census can be a way for historically Hard-To-Count communities to step into their rightful place in the fabric of the City. The census is an opportunity for everyone to participate in and be leaders for ensuring that every person in Long Beach is seen and valued as a contributor to the social, economic, democratic, and civic well-being of the City.   

    The Long Beach Complete Count Committee (LB CCC) is working in alignment with federal, state and regional planning around the 2020 Census. The LB CCC is organized around the anchor collaborative model. The collaborative model is central to the City of Long Beach’s entire Census initiative. Two anchor institutions of Long Beach, the City and the Long Beach Unified School District, jointly convened a body of stakeholders made up of anchor institutions from diverse sectors across the city and specifically designed to focus on Long Beach's unique undercounted communities. The broader community will be engaged through LB CCC and other active community groups who have relationships and trust with communities who are more likely to be undercounted. 

    The LB CCC, acting as representatives of both the anchor institutions and the community at large, has adopted the goals and objectives that drive the Strategic and Implementation Plans. The members of the LB CCC have worked and continue to work to develop specific and customized communications and outreach plans to reach each of Long Beach’s unique populations.
