The LWV-RMA is actively involved with the Rochester Monroe County Complete Count Committee which is reaching out to underrepresented communities to ensure that EVERYONE IS COUNTED in 2020. The League invites you to a community forum on how we can help to ensure that EVERYONE IS COUNTED in 2020.

U.S. Census data provides the basis for the distribution of $675 billion of federal funds to support:

  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program(SNAP)

  • Special Supplemental Nutrition Program forWomen, Infants, and Children (WIC)

  • Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF),including Pass-Through

  • Special Education program funding

  • Community infrastructure

Census data is used to redistribute and apportion Congressional seats. Businesses also utilize Census data to decide where to locate, creating factories, offices, and stores. The forum will also address efforts to include citizenship question(s) on Census 2020. Check out 2020census.gov if you’re interested in becoming a Census enumerator.

Get involved! Join us to see how YOU can make a difference.
