Census 2020 Community Grants Application
The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) plans to ensure that all American Indians/Alaska Natives (AI/AN) are accurately counted in the upcoming 2020 census. To meet this commitment, we rely on our tribal nations, partner organizations, and tribal citizens to become actively engaged in the campaign.

Indian Country Counts - NCAI is offering Community Mini Grant for projects in support of its 2020 Census Campaign. Please note: NCAI will consider funding projects/events in whole or part up to a maximum of $2,500 per tribal nation/organization.

Previous grant award winners are not eligible for a second grant and will not be included in this second wave of awards.

Grantees must be:
1. A tribal nation or Native non-profit organization (upon submission, additional documentation maybe requested for verification)
2. Willing to provide a detailed report documenting impact (example: number of people reached and events held)
3. Able to maintain active engagement in the Indian Country Counts campaign (participate in outreach via social media, coordinator calls and meetings, and hosting training sessions and webinars)

Possible activities/events include but not limited to the following:
• Ordering Indian Country merchandise for tribal nation/community
• Creating advertisements or public service announcements for to share with tribal communities
• Participating as an informational vendor at local events to distribute Census 2020 materials

Background: The census is a critical and powerful information source that will significantly influence American policy for the coming decade. The census is the foundation of American democracy in that it determines the allocation of Congressional seats. It is also used extensively to distribute funds to tribal, state, and local governments and serves as a foundation for policy making as well as research and program evaluation in think tanks, universities, and at all levels of government.

The upcoming Census will be unlike any other census undertaken before. The failure to fully enumerate the AI/AN population could result in devastating consequences, including reductions in access to federal and state services and resources.

Please contact Matt Johnson, Civic Engagement Associate, at mjohnson@ncai.org with any questions.

We will be accepting applications until Friday, January 31, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. EST. To apply, please fill out the form and submit.
