The Census is used to determine our representatives in Congress and the Massachusetts legislature. The Census will also be used to decide how much state and federal dollars are sent to our area for a wide range of programs. Some of the programs that use Census data include:
- Medicare and Medicaid
- Public Safety Grants
- Public Transportation Funding
- Fuel Assistance
If you do not fill out the Census, these programs could lose money in our area and we can lose seats in Congress and the State Legislature. We need you to be counted!
