Update on Timeline for Release of 2020 Census Redistricting Data and Impact On Upcoming CVRA Deadlines

*** UPDATED AS OF 2/12/21 ***

February 2021
Number 4

As stated in our February 2021 Client News Brief (link here), the impact of COVID-19 caused the Census Bureau to delay delivery of the 2020 Census apportionment data to the states.

As an update, the Bureau recently announced that it will deliver the redistricting data to all states by September 30, 2021. This is two months later than previously expected, and six months later than the statutorily contemplated deadline. This delay will impact many public agencies as they begin preparing to address the legal obligations and timelines arising from the release of this data. (Please see our previous CNB for more information regarding these obligations.)
