2020 Census

We are tasked with preventing an undercount of the Black community and increasing the 2020 Census response rate in Fort Wayne’s “Hard to Count” (HTC) communities of color. Each year, based on census data, the federal government spends $675 billion dollars (now estimated at $1.3 trillion) to pay for nurses, doctors, health benefits, affordable and emergency housing, teachers, bus and train lines, transportation infrastructure, senior services, infants and youth services, climate emergency care, and more. Communities that are undercounted do not get their fair share of these resources.
