News “Be counted” billboards coming to a highway near you

The Council is proud to be a recipient of the Statewide Complete Count grant from the Commonwealth’s Secretary of State’s office. 

We have used funding to host an educational webinar with the Census Bureau; give small mini-grants to human services organizations (including one that produced this excellent video from Community Resources for Justice); and create materials such as posters and postcards for human services organizations to use with staff, clients, consumers, families, board members and others, encouraging them to be counted.

This month, we launched an advertising campaign designed to reach hard-to-count communities and those in the community-based human services sector.  Along with targeted ads on Facebook, you’ll see billboards in the Springfield area on the Mass Turnpike, and along Route 146 in the Worcester area.
