The 2-1-1 Maryland United Way Helpline, the 24-hour, 7-day-a-week, 365-day-a-year service offered by United Way of Central Maryland will work to build awareness of the 2020 Census with the funds.

2-1-1 Maryland United Way Helpline will use this funding to expand staffing in order to participate in approximately 40 – 50 community events throughout the region. At these events, staff will be sharing both 2-1-1 resource information as well as 2020 Census information. As appropriate, 2-1-1 community resource specialists will share information with callers about the Census and the importance of participating. And, at United Way of Central Maryland events like Project Homeless Connect and Mission of Mercy, funding will support staffing of a table dedicated to sharing information about 2-1-1 and the 2020 Census.
