Census Day is officially April 1, 2020. Everyone should answer the census questionnaire. We all use our roads, our bridges, our services, and our schools. The census determines how many seats in Pennsylvania will get in Congress and how much federal funding we’ll receive for the next ten years. An estimated $800 billion in federal funds will be allocated to states for things like infrastructure, education, and Medicaid. Pennsylvania stands to lose about $2,000 each year for every person left uncounted. Learn more on why it’s important to get the numbers right.
