Census 2020: Cheltenham Counts

The 2020 Census is coming and Cheltenham Township is looking to do everything to make sure everyone is counted. The Census provides a picture of our nation that filters down to the state, county and municipality level. Grants, national, sate and county funding is often based on Census data.  The Census data has a direct and significant impact on determining local funding for schools, hospitals, emergency services, food insecurity, and many others along with  how congressional seats are apportioned.
