News Census webinars will help you plan for 2020 count

There are many questions floating around the 2020 Census. Will the citizenship question appear? Will the shift to a digital based questionnaire result in undercounting? Will the Census Bureau be fully prepared by 2020?

These questions may not be answered for some time to come, but if your nonprofit will be participating in Census work, or is considering it, Nonprofit VOTE is hosting free webinars in February on how to fund-raise to support those efforts and plan your outreach campaigns.

A nonprofit professional who was successful at securing Census funding in 2010 will also share tips and insights.
