PEACE, Inc. has received funding from the Central New York Community Foundation to “get out the Census” and encourage area residents to complete it. In the coming weeks, you’ll be seeing agency flyers, television and internet advertisements, as well as staff members promoting the Census. The last day to submit your census response is September 30. Time is running short!
There are a host of important reasons for completing the census, since:
1) Census results help determine the amount of federal funds and dollars that flow into our community.
2) The Census determines representation and how many seats in Congress each state receives.
3) It’s mandated in the constitution that the United States counts its population every 10 years.
4) It’s quick and easy.
To be counted, self-respond online, over the phone, or by paper questionnaire and make sure our community receives the funds we need to sustain our programs. Visit www.2020Census.gov.
If you require additional assistance with the census, contact PEACE, Inc.’s Census Outreach coordinator Meg Tamilio at 315-634-3752.
Remember, “You’re not just another Number!”
