By now, you've heard about why it is so important to be counted in census. Well, there's one more statistic that you might not have heard yet. As of April 6, only 56% of New Yorkers have returned their census form.
That means, in the coming months, 44% of New Yorkers will receive a knock on their door from a census worker!
Census forms were mailed to all homes last month. We encourage everyone to take the few minutes necessary to fill out the form and mail it back as soon as possible. Your information is completely protected by law and cannot be shared with any other government agency or individual. Without a complete count, Westchester and its municipalities will not receive their fair share of over $400 billion in federal funding and full representation in Congress.
