Non-profit organizations like Community Action Program, Inc. of Western Indiana rely on Census data to better understand and serve the needs of our program participants and constituencies. In order to continue to provide valuable services and assistance to Indiana families, CAPWI needs the funding to do so. Responses to the 2020 Census will shape how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are distributed to local communities annually.
When we all respond, we all benefit. Many of the direct services that our families could potentially receive to help them become more self-sustainable are a result of Census numbers. The count has long-term impact at the local, state, and federal levels.
Thank you to everyone who has already completed their Census. If you haven’t yet, it only takes about 10 minutes. For the first time, you can choose to complete the Census online, by phone, or by mail. Find out more about each of these methods below:
