Northern Michigan Organizations Receive Census Outreach Grants

Ten groups in northern Michigan just got support to bring the U.S. Census to communities that are typically under-counted.

$110,000 in grants will go to these organizations:

  • Area Agency on Aging of Northwest Michigan
  • Disability Network Northern Michigan
  • District Health Department #10
  • Grand Traverse Community Collaborative
  • Kalkaska County Commission on Aging
  • Manistee County Council on Aging
  • Northwest Michigan Community Action Agency
  • Traverse Area District Library
  • Traverse Health Clinic
  • Wexford County Council on Aging

Networks Northwest is partnering with the Michigan Nonprofit Association to give under-counted communities a chance at participating.

Low-income households, seasonal residents, communities of color, immigrants, and young children all are typically under-counted.

The grants will range from $5,000 to $15,000.
