The Census 2020 count will begin in five months, and preparations are in full swing:

The Colorado Department of Local Affairs State Demography Office (SDO) has developed the Colorado 2020 Census Support Program to support local governments in the promotion of Census 2020. This $220,000 program will provide outreach and marketing support to help local governments and communities advertise Census 2020 by directly providing promotional support or services (banners, flyers, cups, pens, and other Census 2020 promotional materials). Local entities will be limited to requests 
of up to $2,500. 

The goal of the program is to produce community-specific materials, so be creative and create messages and materials that will resonate with your neighbors. Request forms are required and applicants can be reimbursed for purchases, or the program can pay vendors directly. Visit for program guidelines or contact Adam Bickford ( or Justine May ( for assistance.
