Respond to the 2020 Census today!

Sen. Hughes and the PA Senate Democrats fought to include program in COVID-19 relief

The current federal administration has cut census counting efforts by one month. That will affect hard to count areas, such as the black and brown communities that make up important parts of our communities. I want you to respond to the 2020 Census immediately if you haven’t already done so.

​Here are a few reasons why the 2020 Census is so important:

  • The census determines where federal resources go for the next 10 years
  • It determines political representation in Washington, D.C. and Harrisburg
  • It shapes federal planning for transportation, development, businesses and other infrastructure
  • State emergency response resources are based on the census
  • The data and research from the census will be used in critical reports and statistics

I will say it again, this is very important. We cannot afford an undercount in the Philadelphia area. Please respond to the census today so that we can ensure a complete count. If you have questions or need any assistance with the census call at 844.330.2020.

REMINDER: Pennsylvania is in the Green Phase, but we still need you to wear your masks when you go into businesses and may interact with large groups of people. It is critical we take the necessary steps to continue to slow the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19.
