Today is One Year Away from Census Day 2020

Census 1 Year Out Kickoff MemberNews
Census Day 2020 is April 1, 2020- a year from today. From every decennial census comes data that determines political representation and redistricting for the next ten years, informs academic and policy research, and drives over $16 billion in federal funding to Massachusetts every year for Medicare, Medicaid, Title I public school funding, infrastructure investments, and other important programs.

In the 2020 Census, nonprofits will play an important role in census education and outreach to the communities they serve. As trusted messengers, nonprofits can help maximize the participation of “hard-to-count” communities that may feel reluctant to complete the Census, or face challenges related to doing so. (For more information, read our June 2018 Commonwealth Insights report.)

As the 2020 Census draws closer, MNN will provide nonprofits with resources and tools to engage in public education and outreach. Click here for a list of resources for nonprofits to engage with the 2020 Census.
