Maine Census Outreach Fund 2020

The Maine Census Outreach Fund 2020 (MCOF 2020) is a statewide funding initiative with the mission to increase participation in the 2020 census in communities that are at significant risk of being undercounted. Through our statewide grant program, we aim to support organizations with deep relationships in hard-to-count communities around the state to educate, organize and empower residents to respond to the 2020 Census.
