Why Is The 2020 Census Important?

Every 10 years the US Census Bureau counts each person who lives in the United States. It is important for residents of East Harlem to complete the census so that federal funds are properly allocated to our congressional district. The federal funds provide money to hospitals, schools, social service programs, roads, and other vital programs.

We hope you join us in spreading the word to our community to complete the census online, by phone, or return the form in the mail by the end of April 2020.
