Need your help next Monday to kick-off the City’s one year countdown until Census Day 2020. A Census undercount could jeopardize our share of over $800 billion dollars in federal funding and weaken our city’s voice and power in Congress. Vital services including public schools and housing, senior centers, and healthcare could be at stake. Join NYC’s Get Counted team to help protect our resources and our state representation.

Interested students and staff can sign up here to volunteer across the city.
