The 2020 Census and What It Means For You

Long Island is one of the most under-counted regions for youth. The skew in accurate census data results impede Long Island in receiving millions of dollars. This funding can increase the educational and support services that are available to support the youth on Long Island. In this TIM Talk, you will learn about what data is missing, what the impacts are, and how you can take action in 2020 to ensure that your region is better counted.

Presented by Rebecca Sanin, President/CEO, Health and Welfare Council of Long Island (HWCLI)
