The State of California has just published its Census Allocation Plan!
Award amounts for all counties here. (Note: Cities are not eligible to apply for direct funding from the State but can partner as subcontractors with their County. Counties must document how they will collaborate and coordinate with cities before they can receive funding from the State)
Funding will be primarily be provided to Administrative CBOs for 10 regions in California. ACBOs “are large CBOs or foundations with the administrative capacity and experience to conduct robust outreach throughout an entire region.” ACBOs can subcontract with local CBOs.
See all ACBO and CBO regional funding here. Requirements for participating ACBOs will be released with the RFP in December
Two other items to note: the State is providing funding in the form of contracts, not grants, to provide more oversight of its funding recipients. Small, community-based nonprofits can partner as subcontractors with both ACBOs and County governments.
