ULMT IS COMMITTED TO
A FULL COUNT IN THE 2020 CENSUS
April 1, 2020 is Census Day for the next decennial census; the nation's once-per-decade, constitutionally-mandated count of every American, regardless of their citizenship status. The decennial census is one of the nation's most important programs.
Tennessee's fair share of federal funds for programs essential to health care, education, housing, economic development and transportation, as well as our congressional representation in Washington, all depends on an accurate and fully-counted census response.
The Urban League of Middle Tennessee has committed resources to develop a comprehensive, collaborative and ongoing effort to identify hard-to-count populations and identify the most effective ways to encourage participation in the census.
Additionally, the ULMT Complete Census Campaign is holding sessions across Middle Tennessee to inform counties and community-based organizations on how to apply for available State funding as well as best practices to coordinate efforts and resources to reach at-risk and hard-to-count communities.
