Policy Counsel Peter Chen states that, though the 2020 Census seems far away, now is the time to act to ensure an accurate count. Otherwise, New Jersey risks missing individuals in known hard-to-count populations, particularly residents who are part of a racial or ethnic minority, who rent their home, who are immigrants, or who are children under 5. And the state stands to lose billions in federal funding if we have an undercount, including support for critical programs such as children’s health insurance, school funding, school lunch and breakfast programs, Head Start, highway funding, college scholarships, and housing programs.
