More about the Census:
The Census determines New York City and Brooklyn fair share of over $650 billion of federal funds every year, assisting critical programs and services.
The more people that are accounted for, the better that the government can allocate funds and services over the next decade.
These funds help programs including public education, public housing, roads, social services, and more. It also determines the number of representatives fighting for our state in Congress.
