As a Regional Intermediary, IPHA will select local organizations in the Southern Region for sub-awards.

The amount of the sub-awards will depend on the area of coverage and scope of work.
If you are interested in working with IPHA in the Southern Region on the 2020 Census in hard-to-reach communities, please submit a Letter of Interest to include the following information:
- Agency name and contact person
- Brief description of agency and mission
- Proposed physical area of coverage
- Description of hard-to-reach communities you propose to target and/or have access to
- Any current census activities you are already involved in
The letter should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 5:00pm on November 13, 2019. We will review the letters of interest and follow-up with agencies the week of November 18th regarding more details on funding amounts, scope of services, etc.
