DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit-based philanthropy is providing grants to organizations seeking to promote and support a fair and accurate count in the 2020 U.S. Census.

The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan says the funding is available for groups in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties that work with historically undercounted populations such as communities of color, low-income households, immigrants and young children.

Census data is used to allocate federal funds that support education, infrastructure and human service expenditures.

Grant proposals are due May 1. Grants will range from $5,000 to $30,000 depending on the project’s scope. Funding will run from July 2019 through August 2020.

The Community Foundation is working in partnership with the Michigan Nonprofit Association and its statewide Be Counted Michigan 2020 campaign .
