Census 2020 is coming, and Westchester County Executive George Latimer kicked off the County’s 2020 Census Campaign to ensure that every Westchester County resident is counted. Latimer was joined by local municipalities who have their own Census Complete Count Committees, Census advocates, community-based organizations, college students and more at Pace University, to stress the importance of a full and complete count for the 2020 Census. 

Included in the County’s efforts to promote the Census is a robust public awareness campaign in both English and in Spanish, which includes a series of public service announcements (PSA’s), each one focused on a different target audience for the Census. The seventh PSA focuses on how the Census impacts our business community.  

Watch the seventh video, “The Census and Young Children."

The seventh PSA features Kathy Halas, Executive Director of the Child Care Council of Westchester. The results of the Census drives funding for programs that are critical for young children such as childcare, the Head Start Program, after school curricular activities and more. Many of Westchester County’s children and families do not have access to such programs, and the only way to increase funding is to ensure that every child is counted in the 2020 Census.
