The 2020 Census
The 2020 Census forms are soon to arrive.
I am asking all to complete the form as they impact us locally.
There is a lot at stake for Pennsylvania residents when it comes to the US Census.
Pennsylvania receives about $2,100 in federal funds per person, for a total of $38 billion.
Without an accurate count, the state could receive fewer federal funds for programs such as money for medical care, food assistance, housing, transportation, education and community development.
The census also determines how many seats in the U.S. House of Representatives each state has.
Pennsylvania currently has 18 House members and is expected to lose at least one congressional seat. Losing seats makes Pennsylvania less valuable to presidential candidates.
Be sure to complete the 2020 U.S. Census to Pennsylvania can be fairly represented and funded.
