The 2020 Census is a critical effort that translates directly into Community Health Center funding. It is important that we ensure all of the members of our communities are counted this year.

We are partnering with non-profit VotER to build this capacity within the health center movement. Every CHC will receive 2 clings (removable stickers) with QR and text codes that will direct patients, staff, vendors and supporters to a link to register to vote.
