Detroit community groups can win $1000 gift cards helping residents complete the Census

The Detroit Census Neighborhood Competition just got better. If you are part of a Detroit neighborhood group, then your group can now win a $1000 gift card helping residents complete the 2020 Census. You will have until July 9 to register your group for the Census contest.

The City of Detroit will award $1000 gift cards to the top 20 neighborhood groups with the highest response increase in their selected Census tract(s).  Awards will be based on the increase in Census response rate between the final 2010 rate and response rate for the tract(s) on July 31, 2020.

To be eligible for an award, groups must be neighborhood-based organizations in Detroit (with defined boundaries) and be willing to conduct two Census-related activities by July 31.

Groups can identify one Census tract (no more than 2 tracts) on the City's Census page. Interested organizations must complete the Detroit Census Neighborhood Competition form.
