The data collected by the Census every ten years determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to state and local governments. A complete and accurate count of California's population is critical to ensuring that people who live in the Golden State are represented fairly and that adequate funding is available for healthcare, public service and other necessary programs. RHA will support outreach projects designed to ensure an accurate and complete count of Californians in the 2020 Census. We will augment the state Census Outreach Campaign by providing program management, compliance, and direct field support. The California Census anticipates projects associated with these efforts will take one year to 18 months to fully complete.
