CLEVELAND: IT'S IN OUR HANDS

Become a Census Community Champion

The 2010 US Census is on its way, and Clevelanders need to be counted if our community is to receive its fair share of dollars for services that benefit all of us. For every Clevelander missed in the Census, our community will lose $1,200 in funds for critical services during the next 10 years – services for children, seniors, families and others.

If Cleveland is to succeed in achieving a "Complete Count" of our residents, we will need the help of our most active residents to share the Census message with their friends and neighbors. You can be a "Census Community Champion" for Cleveland by volunteering as a "Neighborhood Leader" or a "Neighborhood Tract Coordinator."

By volunteering for Cleveland's "Complete Count" campaign, you will learn about the Census and you will be given materials to share with your neighbors. You will learn why the Census is important to your neighborhood and why no one should be afraid to fill out the Census form when it arrives in the mail.

Neighborhood Leaders

Description: One Neighborhood Leader will be selected in each of Cleveland's 36 neighborhood planning areas for the 2010 Census Complete Count project.
