Learn more about the 2020 Census
Posted on 08/01/2019

Starting in March 2020, households across our region and across the country will have the opportunity to participate in the 2020 Census. Your participation matters.

Census data is used to allocate billions of dollars in federal and non-profit funding to counties and other local governments.

Each individual who completes the census brings around $2,000 in federal funding to our community. Funding for things like:

  • Education programs and grants
  • Public transportation
  • Medicare and Medicaid
  • SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program)
  • Libraries
  • Community Centers
  • School meal programs
  • Parks, playgrounds, and recreational facilities

Census numbers also determine how many representatives a state has in Congress.

A complete and accurate Census is paramount to equity, opportunity, and addressing the many issues faced by our region and the nation.
