State Funding For Census Outreach Still In Limbo

In the Times Union, David Lombardo reports  “Some efforts to prepare New Yorkers for next year’s census count are on hold as community organizations wait for answers about available state funding.

Outreach in advance of the official count next spring is expected to play a critical role in ensuring the most accurate accounting of the state’s population, which will be use to determine New York’s share of certain federal aid and the size of its congressional delegation. The initial groundwork would be used to engage hard-to-count neighborhoods with young children, high poverty, renters or minorities.”
