Timing of Census Work

Many organizations are working to create Complete Count Committees or writing grant proposals to secure funding for Census outreach. I’m sure you have asked yourselves “When should we start outreach to families?”, “When will forms be mailed out?” or “When does the Census actually end?”

The Funders’ Committee has released an updated summary of the key points on the Census timeline, available here. It should help you figure out the best timeline for work in your state.
