Census 2020

There is much at stake in Census 2020. Connecticut receives $10.7 billion in federal funding for everything from roads, schools, public works, and vital assistance programs. For every person in Connecticut not counted, an estimated $2,900 will go to other states! We cannot let that happen because community needs will remain the same and nonprofits will be asked to do more.

Congressional representation and critical data used for decision-making, such as where nonprofit programs and services should be located, are other reasons getting the Census count right is critical to Connecticut’s future.
