Massachusetts Census Equity Fund 2020
The decennial census is a nonpartisan exercise and a cornerstone of our democracy. Every 10 years, the US Constitution requires that all residents, including non-citizens and undocumented immigrants, be counted through a nationwide census. Collecting accurate Census data is an essential part in determining a fair allocation of federal funds and political representation at the federal, state, and local levels. The 2020 Census will have a wide-ranging and long-term impact on the future of our Commonwealth.
