ENSURING A COMPLETE U.S. CENSUS COUNT IN PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY – JULY 9TH AND 11TH


Please join your neighbors at two important advisory neighborhood community (ANC) meetings next week in New Carrollton and Temple Hills and discuss the importance of the upcoming decennial United States Census count for Prince George’s County. The accuracy of ensuring that everyone in our county and across the country is counted will determine how $900 billion in federal dollars and services are spent in our communities. Additionally, state and local governments will rely on census data in the determinations of local and state policies and funding. An accurate count will not happen by itself. We need your help! Join us next week by registering below and Have a Happy Fourth of July!
