County and Local Government Funding

To maximize dollars distributed to local communities and require collaboration and coordination between governmental entities, the State will use counties as fiscal agents for funds targeting HTC populations within their boundaries, including those within incorporated cities.

Counties that opt-in will collaborate and coordinate with cities within their boundaries. Should a county choose not to participate, the State will reach out to a large city, regional council of government or ultimately a community-based organization with the administrative capacity and experience to conduct robust outreach in that county.

Tribal Governments will be awarded funding agreements to conduct Census outreach activities in their geographical service areas. Funding tiers are based on housing units ranging from $1,000 funding agreements for Tribal Governments with 25 to 49 housing units to $50,000 for those with more than 10,000 housing units.

Approximately $27 million will be allocated for local governments. For information on county funding allocations, see Census Funding.
