Help Shape Newark's Future
Count everyone in your home on the 2020 Census. The results of the Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of every community. Think of your morning commute. Census results influence highway planning an construction, as well as grants for buses, subways, and other public transit systems. Or think of your local schools. Census results help determine how money is allocated for the Head Start program and for grants that support teachers and special education.
The list goes on, including programs to support rural areas, to restore wildlife, to prevent child abuse, to prepare for wildfires, and to provide housing assistance for older adults.
