About Bay Area Counts 2020
Bay Area Counts 2020 is a regional census outreach initiative led by the United Way Bay Area (UWBA). Our vast network of nonprofit, business, and government partners is working to ensure every person in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Solano Counties is counted in the 2020 Census.

About United Way Bay Area
United Way Bay Area (UWBA) fights for financial stability and equal opportunity for residents in eight Bay Area counties. UWBA takes an innovative, holistic approach to ending the cycle of poverty through advocacy and programs that support all ages—providing free access to family support, financial and career coaching, job opportunities and basic needs. United Way Bay Area (UWBA) was selected through a competitive application process to serve as the “Administrative Community Based Organization” (ACBO) for the State of California’s Complete Count efforts. As the administrative backbone for regional census outreach, we serve as a funder, convener, coordinator, and technical assistance provider for organizations working to support a complete count.
