The Children’s Aid Society is partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau to spread the word about the importance of the 2010 Census.

Every year, more than $300 billion in federal funds are awarded to states and communities for new hospitals, schools, better transportation and social services based on the Census’ population count.

The session will feature:

- A speaker from the U.S. Census Bureau, who will explain the process and its importance in ensuring that underserved communities get the services they need. She will also stress that all answers to Census questions are confidential. Census does not share information with other agencies.

- The Children’s Aid Society’s Health Care Access Program (HCAP) will be on hand to enroll those qualified for state health insurance programs.
