Organizations across the country are supporting the 2020 Census. We'll regularly feature some of them here, looking at who they are and why an accurate census is so important to them.
Organization Name: Propel
Headquarters: Brooklyn, New York
About: Propel, the company behind Fresh EBT, is a team of technologists, advocates, and engineers.
Census Bureau Partner Since: 2018
Why They Got Involved:
"Our application, Fresh EBT, is the most widely trusted tool for low-income Americans to improve their financial health and access these important government-provided benefits. An inaccurate census, or a census undercount, would impact the daily lives of our users. It would mean less federal funding for the programs many of them depend on to house, feed, and provide for their families — like Medicaid, Section 8 housing assistance, and support for school lunches."
—Molly McGowan, Senior Business Development Manager, Propel
