Webinar: Best Practices and Staying Legal: Census Phone and Texting Outreach

However, this messaging does not fully reflect the outreach options that organizations have when promoting participation in the Census. To ensure that everyone stay in compliance while maximizing census outreach, the Census Counts coalition is hosting a webinar to walk through what the guidance means, what organizations can and cannot do, and some best practices from the field.

How Nonprofits Can Ensure an Accurate Census Count

Nonprofits can play a critical role in ensuring an accurate census count by making sure temporary census workers do not lose their public benefits, while working for the Census Bureau. Research from past advocacy campaigns demonstrates that residents are more responsive to answer the door for people from within their community. However, members of the hard to count community are often ineligible to work even temporarily as census enumerators without losing their public assistance. Each state agency that administers TANF, SNAP, Medicaid, or CHIP must elect to opt into a waiver process that protects the benefits of temporary census workers. Read this factsheet to find out more about the waiver process, and what you can do to ensure agencies in your state are opting in.
