August 1, 2019: Connect NY: Ensuring an accurate Census count
August 1, 2019
New York State may lose 1 or 2 Congressional district seats after the next round of redistricting. Why should you care? Because every person counted means more federal money for things like housing, Head Start, the school lunch program, college loans and more.

Sharon Owens, Deputy Mayor of the City of Syracuse
Nicholas J. Simons, Project Coordinator at the Rockefeller Institute of Government
