People who live in Connecticut could miss out on a lot if everyone is not counted in the Census. Connecticut could lose out on the political representation it deserves. And people and communities could be denied money that they need for schools, community health care, jobs, and transportation.
In 2016, Connecticut received more than $10 billion from federal spending programs guided by data derived from the 2010 Census. Connecticut can’t afford to miss out!

Census 2020 Toolkit for Nonprofits
Connecticut’s nonprofits have a special role to play in the 2020 census – the people you serve and work with trust you in a way that they may not trust government officials who come to their doors. The stakes are huge. The way in which $800 billion in federal money is spent will largely be determined by census results. This toolkit explains the importance of the census and, gives tips on how you can help.
