Join us at Storrs Library for our Census 2020 Kick-Off! We’re hosting a panel discussion featuring State RepresentativesPaul W. Mark and Brian M. Ashe along with the US Census Bureau and the PioneerValley Planning Commission Complete Count Committee. Join us to learn more from our panel about the effects of the Census and why it’s so important to count everyone!
Census counts have a huge impact on our community. The 2020 Census data will be used to determine how more than $675 billion from more than 100 government programs are distributed to states and localities, including communities like ours. The data influence choices made about which roads are fixed, where schools are built and businesses opened, what medical services are offered, and more.
