Census 2020: How Your Nonprofit Can Help Ensure an Accurate Count in the Upcoming Census
The 2020 Census is a once-in-a-decade opportunity to count everyone who lives in New Jersey. The Census is required by the Constitution. The federal government uses the numbers to allocate resources to state governments – more than $22.7 billion dollars to New Jersey every year. The Census determines congressional districts and state legislative districts. When New Jersey residents are not counted the state loses funding and influence. Nonprofits and civic organizations can help.
Almost everything we know about our population and our communities comes from information collected through the Census and its related surveys. The Census data help businesses, nonprofits, funders, and local governments understand their communities’ needs and how to meet them. It is important that the official numbers are accurate.
Join us to learn more about how our partners can help everyone in New Jersey be counted.
