Face Covering Enforcement
By law, every 10 years the U.S. Census counts every resident in the United States. Your participation determines representation and how billions in federal funds are distributed. If our community is undercounted, friends and neighbors miss out on an estimated $18,250 per person over a 10-year period. Statewide, that’s a total of $26.6 billion over a 10-year period.
The federal government distributes $675 billion to states and communities based on census data. The money is spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other programs.
Every 10 years, a complete count of every person in the United States helps identify and allocate those funds. For each person in Prince George’s County who fails to be counted, the County loses federal funding for your community. The 2020 Census is more than a count. It's an opportunity to get involved and to help shape the future of your community.
The data collected from each census are used in many ways. Some examples include:

Governor Hogan's Veto
Disappointingly, Governor Hogan vetoed the Blueprint for Maryland's Future.
This legislation is critical for both the short and long-term success of Maryland's students and economy. This is the time to ensure our state creates a world-class system in an economically responsible way. The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified the need for our public schools to be funded to help our children succeed in a 21st century, global market. Tell your lawmakers to override the veto and improve Maryland's public schools for all students!
