Last year, the IL Count Me In 2020 Funders' Collaborative co-chairs, Mark Murray of the Field Foundation and Deborah Bennett of Polk Bros. Foundation, worked hard all year to help secure contributions of $1.65 million in a pooled fund. This fall, Forefront worked closely with several foundations through a smaller working group to create a pertinent grant application, drawing from the 2010 IL Count Me In RFP, that the larger Funders’ Collaborative for 2020 is reviewing to inform the RFP for Census 2020.

On April 3, 2019 Forefront announced the 42 grantees who will participate in Census 2020 outreach and education efforts. Forefront is incredibly proud to shepherd these vital resources to our grantees resulting in their increased capacity and to build even more momentum leading up to the 2020 Census.
