2020 Census Fair

11225, NY, Brooklyn

We need you to make Brooklyn Count 100%!

Did you know that Brooklyn is one of the areas most undercounted by the U.S. Census? The census is a count of every person in the United States, and takes place every 10 years. The Census determines federal funding for education, healthcare, public housing and our parks, as well as our number of representatives in Congress. It’s essential that every New Yorker is counted, and our voices are heard.

Join Prospect Park Alliance at our 2020 Census Fair to find out how you can help Brooklyn Count 100%.

At the Fair, you can...

RSVP to the Census Info Session + Fair today!

Why is the 2020 Census Critical for Brooklyn?

  • Every 10 years, every person living in the United States is counted to make sure we’re getting our fair share of federal funding for schools, roads, parks and other essential community resources.
  • The count of each New Yorker represents $3,000 in federal funding: $650 billion per year distributed among 200 vital programs. There is almost no issue or program that is unaffected by the Census count.
  • In the 2010 Census, Brooklyn was one of the most undercounted places in the entire United States.
  • If Brooklyn is undercounted again, we could lose up to two seats in Congress, which means less of our voice in Washington on decisions that affect the future of our community.
  • The 2020 Census is the first time you'll be able to respond online, in addition to phone and mail. The Census asks basic questions about your home in Brooklyn to make certain everyone is counted: a two-minute, 10 question survey. 
  • The Census will not ask for your personal information, such as your social security number, political beliefs or financial information. All information you share is kept confidential and protected by law. 

Let's make certain Brooklyn counts 100% in 2020—RSVP today!
