The Massachusetts Census Equity Fund (MCEF) is a statewide funding initiative working to increase participation in the 2020 Census, specifically in communities that are at risk of being undercounted. MCEF provides grants for grassroots organizations working toward creating an accurate and fair count, as well as a learning community for partners.

The mission of MCEF is to increase participation in the 2020 Census in communities that are at significant risk of being under counted. The goal of MCEF’s statewide grant program is to support community based organizations to educate, organize and empower residents in hard-to-count communities to respond to the 2020 Census.
