Public Policy and Advocacy Strategies
Public policy engagement is a key strategy for ensuring sustainable improvements in population health. As a result, health philanthropy plays a vital and unique role in the public policy process. GIH works to build understanding between health grantmakers and policymakers, and supports grantmakers in their efforts to advance policy change.

The Local Update of Census Addresses (LUCA) is the only opportunity offered to tribal, state, and local governments to review and comment on the U.S. Census Bureau's residential address list for their jurisdiction prior to the 2020 Census. The Census Bureau relies on a complete and accurate address list to reach every living quarters and associated residents for inclusion in the census. LUCA invitations were recently mailed to government officials. Is your government participating?
Sponsored by the Funders' Committee for Civic Participation, the Funders Census Initiative 2020 serves as a clearinghouse of information for philanthropies interested in the upcoming decennial census. Resources include key milestones for 2020 census planning and preparations, updates on the Hard to Count mapping project that identifies areas with significant numbers of people most likely to go uncounted, an action plan for philanthropic support and engagement, and other materials to facilitate funder involvement.
