Why is this important?

  • Census responses determine the amount of federal money received by our communities for health care, schools, transportation, substance use prevention/treatment grants, and other vital programs.

  • The census only happens once every 10 years, and many communities in MA that were hard hit by COVID-19 currently have a lower response rate than in 2010. Several communities have response rates in the 50% range, which means federal money will reflect half the number of residents.

  • Given the tremendous impact of COVID-19 on so many individuals’ well-being, our communities need to access as much census money as possible now more than ever before.
