A new school to ease overcrowded classrooms. A new road to ease overcrowded commutes. There are many ways the 2020 Census can shape your community.

Community Action Resource Guide on Proposed Poverty Measure Changes

The National Community Action Partnership is deeply troubled by the Administration’s proposal to change the way the official poverty threshold is adjusted annually, potentially shifting to an inflation measure that would annually define fewer people as poor. Such a change would ensure more people will struggle over time to access programs and services needed to stabilize their families.

By collectively raising our voice and commenting on this critical issue, we can ensure that the administration knows where the anti-poverty community stands on these proposed changes. To assist agencies in crafting their own public comments, we have compiled a list of resources below on this issue.
