Be counted in the 2020 Census. When you respond, everyone benefits.

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.

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.
