Help Protect Funding for Children

Thanks to Children First Communities in Schools for providing the following update regarding the inclusion of children in the 2020 federal budget Census. Providing the Census Bureau with adequate funding of $4.46 billion to do its job will ensure accurate allocation of federal funding for the infrastructure and programs that we all depend on.
