The CNHA Census Grant Program aims at improving the Census data accuracy for potentially hard-to-count Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders (NHPIs) in the State of Hawaii. A grant fund has been established for State-wide organizations that improve civic engagement and promote census participation in NHPI communities.
If your organization currently operates or in the future will operate a program or service with the goal of increasing census participation, you are encouraged to apply. Organizations with a CNHA membership will have application approval preference.
Submission Deadline: TBD
- Preference given to federal or state non-profit community groups or organizations that exist in or provide service to Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander Hard to Count communities.
- Preference will be given as well to CNHA member organizations.
- Grant funding must apply toward the service of increasing Census 2020 participation. This is not a blanket grant for all civic engagement projects.
