As we continue to physically distance, one way to come together is by filling out the 2020 Census. Doing so helps direct billions of dollars of federal funding for things our communities need, including roads, schools, and hospitals for the next 10 years. April 1 was Census Day – but the 2020 Census is still ongoing. People who have not responded can still respond by internet, phone and by mail.
To date, 45.3% of Boston's households have responded to the 2020 Census. We urge you, if you haven't already, to complete the Census during Census Awareness Weekend: May 1, May 2 and May 3, 2020. Catholic Charities directly benefits from this federal funding and it is crucial to continuing our programs and services that helped over 175,000 individuals last year.
