Pennsylvania is at risk of an undercount in the 2020 Census, and this could mean a significant loss of federal funds for healthcare, nutrition assistance, transportation, housing, education, programs for children and parents, and much more! We can't afford to put these programs needlessly at risk. That's why Pennsylvania needs to take immediate action to prevent an undercount.
We need your help asking Members of the PA Legislature to support a public fund of $12.8 million for the Census to prevent an undercount in Pennsylvania! Please take a minute to make a call before June 17th:
"Hello, my name is ____ and I’m a constituent of Rep./Sen. _____'s. I’m calling to express my concern about an undercount in the 2020 Census and to urge Representative/Senator ___ to support a public fund of $12.8 million to ensure Pennsylvania is prepared for the next Census.
An undercount would mean a substantial reduction in the $39 billion in federal census-directed funds flowing into Pennsylvania, putting critical programs that serve children, seniors, and people with disabilities needlessly at risk of losing federal funds.
Pennsylvania can't afford to lose those federal funds. Please encourage ___ to support efforts to ensure an accurate count!"
