United Way for Greater Austin is pleased to be partnering with the philanthropic community in Central Texas to promote get-out-the-count efforts for the 2020 Census. Our efforts focus in providing grants totaling $395,000 to community-based organizations and Complete Count Committees to ensure hard-to-count communities in the counties of Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis, and Williamson participate in the census.
Texas has one of the largest risks of an undercount, due to a large number of hard-to-count populations, such as young children, immigrants, rural residents, and people experiencing homelessness. These grants will help us ensure all of us are counted.
We are thankful to the foundations that have contributed to this initiative to date:
