The Census is an important tool used to count each and every U.S. resident. Why? It is used to determine and inform:
Where government funding will be spent
The allocation of political representation and districts
Business and economic decisions
The amount of funding for community-based organizations and services
Without an accurate count, Springfield Township and Montgomery County could be at risk of losing political representation and tens of millions of dollars of funding. Check out the County'sstory map for more information about the Census, how and when you will receive your form, and how it impacts residents! You can also access the U.S. Census 2020 website in English and Spanish for more information.
