The U.S. Census is the basis for distribution of federal and state funding, political representation, and community decision-making. According to the Governorís 2020 Complete Count Committee, allocations from 16 large federal assistance programs (including Medicaid, SNAP, housing vouchers, and education grants) are derived from the census count. In fiscal year 2015, the state received $26.79 billion dollars in federal grants from these 16 programs alone. Estimates show that for every uncounted person in the 2020 Census, Pennsylvania communities stand to lose $2,093 in federal funding annually. An accurate census will ensure that communities receive fair share of federal funding. The 2020 Census is safe, easy, and important. It can be completed online or by phone, paper copy, or census taker.Library: Phoenixville Public Library
Census takers begin visiting nonresponding households across the nation in mid-August. Responding now minimizes the need for census takers to visit homes to collect responses in person.
