Opposing the Proposed Changes Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA)

Philanthropy California joined organizations across the state in submitting comments on two critical 2020 Census-related regulations.  Both proposals, if enacted, would impede California’s ability to have a fair and accurate count. The first is in response to the Federal Register Notice on the procedures for participating in the appeals process for the 2020 Census Local Updates of Census Addresses (LUCA) program.

On May 21, the Office of Management and Budget released a notice of the proposed procedures for local LUCA participants to appeal the Census Bureau’s LUCA decisions.  Philanthropy California submitted comments opposing the proposed LUCA appeals process, which would require localities to provide “supporting documentation” for each appealed addressed that the Census Bureau did not accept and place an undue administrative burden on many large and small localities.  Comment period closed on Thursday, June 21, 2018.
