Congress urged to boost funding for Census modernization

“A coalition of 55 national, state and local organizations are calling on Congressional appropriators to significantly increase funding for the U.S. Census Bureau in an effort to modernize technology and prepare for the 2030 Census.

In a letter to House and Senate appropriators Tuesday, The Census Project asked for $2 billion in funding for the Census Bureau in fiscal 2022, a $335 million increase in funding over the agency’s fiscal 2021 budget of $1.65 billion.

The letter comes as the Census Bureau is in the late stages of finishing its 2020 Census, which faced numerous challenges and some delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘The Census Bureau is at an important crossroads: still resolving the outcome of the 2020 Census, while simultaneously pursuing groundbreaking technical innovations and preparing for the 2030 Census,’ the letter states. ‘In FY 2022, Congress has a unique opportunity to initiate multi-year funding for the Bureau, providing the agency with resources that it needs to not only sustain and strengthen its mission but also to recover from years of postponed enhancements and pursue numerous necessary operational improvements.’…” Read the full article here.
