The Census Bureau has begun its once-in-a-decade effort to count all of the residents in the United States. It is important that the count is fair and accurate as the results will impact New York’s representation in the House of Representatives and the funding it receives for vital federal programs.
Based on information gathered from the Census, the federal government distributes more than $400 billion each year to fund everything from housing assistance, hospitals, child-care and senior citizen centers, to schools and afterschool programs, to roads and mass transit.
