    The Association for a Better New York (ABNY) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the constant growth and renewal of New York City’s people, businesses and communities. ABNY brings together leaders from government, business, labor, non-profit, education, healthcare, sports & entertainment, and tourism sectors to solve the problems of the day and keep the city moving forward.

    In an effort to help New York City and State achieve the most accurate census count possible, ABNY has implemented a two-year strategic plan to ensure a fair and accurate 2020 decennial census count. To accomplish this, ABNY formed an organizing and action committee comprised of corporate, non-profit, community and union leaders. It is ABNY’s objective to achieve three primary goals: 1) maximize the census self-response rate in 2020; 2) help New Yorkers complete the census form; and 3) raise awareness about confidentiality and privacy protections under Title 13 of the United States Code.

    The 2020 Census is of critical importance to New York, as tens of billions of our state and city budgets are derived from population-based funding programs. The upcoming census is complicated by the attempt to add a citizenship question on the census form, the migration from paper forms to mostly online, the reduction in federal resources for staffing and offices, and a reduction in outreach to New York’s already hard-to-count populations. The outcome of these changes may result in the loss of billions of dollars to New York and the loss of 1-2 congressional seats.
