In the last census, Pennsylvania undercounted 25,197 kids, resulting in nearly $44 million in lost federal funding. The 2020 Census is approaching and it’s critical to #CountAllKids. When we miss young children in the census, it has serious consequences for them, their families, their communities and our nation – with many of those consequences lasting for at least 10 years; most of their childhood.
Download the 2020 Census toolkit and help to spread the importance of counting every child in Pennsylvania. Together, we can ensure an accurate and fair share of federal funding for education, health care, child care and more. Find more information here.
