The 2010 Census is very beneficial to our community.
"Make Sure Your Community Counts." Although the due date for the return of your 2010 census questionnaire has come and gone, April 1, 2010 (Census Day) it is not to late to fill out your census form. The U. S. Postal Service delivered census forms to households in March and in the upcoming months (May-July) census takers will be following up with households that did not return the questionnaires.
It's important and beneficial to our community as our fair share of Liquid Fuel Funds and Pennsylvania's representatives in Washington are at stake. Census data helps to determine the distribution of more than $400 billion of federal funding each year to states and municipalities for transportation, housing, economic development, public safety, education and health and human services programs, block grants and other grant programs.
Finally, population figures determine the number of seats Pennsylvania will keep in the U. S. House of Representatives.
