|If you are part of a Detroit neighborhood group, then your group could win a $500 gift card by helping residents complete the 2020 Census.
The City of Detroit will award $500 gift cards to the top 20 neighborhood groups with the highest response increase in their selected Census tract(s). Census officials also will award $200 gift cards to groups, that are not in the top 20, but finish in the top five in their districts.
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 (but no more than 2 tracts) by going to the Explore Map on the City’s Census page. Interested organizations must complete the Detroit Census Neighborhood Competition form by July 3, 2020.
