Where Auburn Comes Together!
The 2020 Census is the largest collection of statistical information on everyone who lives in the United States and is required by the U.S. Constitution. Responses to the 2020 Census will shape how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to local communities.
According to the NH Business Review:
More than $3.7 billion in federal funds are allocated to New Hampshire based on census data, including everything from funding for highway planning and construction, the federal Pell Grant program and low-income home energy assistance to block grants for the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and water and waste disposal systems for rural communities.
Beyond federal funding, the census determines the allocation of congressional districts and the electoral college. The Legislature will use the 2020 census data for redistricting. Undercounts in certain areas of the state may lead to inaccurate representation in the Legislature and the Executive Council.
Although this year will be the first census to allow online responses there are still many jobs available for 2020 Census Takers.
If you have questions about the 2020 Census or the available positions, then stop by Griffin Free Public Library between 11 AM and Noon on Friday, February 14. We will be joined by staff from the Concord Office of the 2020 Census. This event is free and open to the public.
