Census 2010: Resources and Information

New from Nonprofits Count

With only 35 days to go until April 1st, opportunities to access Census resources for nonprofits abound online. Some initiatives, like Nonprofits Count, offer an online form to order free materials designed to encourage participation of undercounted communities in the 2010 Census. Other groups make resources available for download or in interactive online formats, like Ya Es Hora's guide to the census questionnaire.
The following is a list of the top resources from Nonprofits Count.
Nonprofits Count will be continuing its popular webinar series in March. We are still accepting registrations for tomorrow's webinar, "Countdown to the 2010 Census," a discussion of outreach strategies and effective messaging for reaching nonprofits' clients and constituents on the 2010 Census. The webinar will be hosted by Terri Ann Lowenthal of the Census Project and Bridgette Rongitsch, National Director of NVEN. To register, click here.

New Fact Sheets in Online Toolkit
Nonprofits Count is pleased to announce the addition of a new fact sheet series, "About the Census," to our online toolkit. Available in both English and Spanish, the "About the Census" one-page series focus on the issues around counting various constituency groups. Titles include "Counting Children," "Counting College Students," "Counting Group Quarters" and more. The fact sheets are in full color and are available for download or viewing here.

Posters and buttons
NVEN is pleased to make available two new posters promoting the 2010 Census. Hang one or both of these posters in your nonprofit's lobby, client intake area, or anywhere else constituents and community members will see them. To order a free poster, click here.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

Announcing the LISC Rapid Relief and Resiliency Fund

LISC is taking swift action in response to the coronavirus pandemic, to mitigate economic impact on residents in the hundreds of communities where we work. We are launching the LISC Rapid Relief and Resiliency Fund to assemble and deploy resources to our local partners, small businesses and residents who are being hit hardest. The Fund will deliver operating capital, emergency subsidies and IT support, as well as technical assistance, to keep our partners and their communities strong and functioning through this unprecedented situation.

Verizon and LISC Come Together to Support Small Businesses with COVID-19 Recovery Fund

An investment of $2.5 million from Verizon is making it possible for LISC to begin offering critical relief and resiliency-building support to small businesses facing immediate financial threat because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding will go to make grants of up to $10,000, especially to entrepreneurs of color, women-owned businesses and other enterprises in historically under-served places who don’t have access to flexible, affordable capital. Verizon will highlight and bolster these efforts through their inaugural "Pay It Forward Live" online concert series.

A Message from LISC About COVID-19

Along with much of the world, we are closely monitoring the rapidly unfolding news of the COVID-19 pandemic. As ever, we are committed to meeting the needs of our partners and the communities we serve, and to supporting the wellbeing of our employees and the people and places where we live and work. Here are some of the things we are doing to respond to this unprecedented situation.
