A fair and accurate Census in 2020 is crucial for states and counties who want to protect their most disadvantaged. ‘Unconventional’ addresses are often undercounted in the Census, and folks living in these addresses tend to represent low-income and minority groups. Securing federal funding and political representation for these groups requires an accurate count.
City and county governments can register for grants to assist with LUCA submissions, and those grants can be used to enable nonprofits in your area to collect LUCA submissions. Click here to learn more about incentives for Cities and Counties in California.
Info needed for LUCA submissions:
1. Longitude and Latitude
2. 100-character location description and street-style address if possible
Census Outreach enables simple collection of address information by nonprofit volunteers using mobile phones.
