Help our Community!
So many of the programs that allow us to provide affordable housing to our community here in Northampton depend on the census data such as:
- Our Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Program which pays a portion of the rent for our voucher holders and supports landlords/businesses in the area.
- Public Housing Capital Fund which provides us with the ability to do renovations at McDonald House and Florence Heights
Please take 30 seconds to learn how we have the power to make a difference by participating in the 2020 Census!
Another great video to watch:
Participating in the census is required by law, even if you recently completed another survey from the Census Bureau. A complete and accurate count is critical for you and your community, because the results of the 2020 Census will affect community funding, congressional representation, and more.
