Next year, the census will be in full swing. I'm proud to join Census Counts, a campaign committed to a fair and accurate 2020 Census because if our community is not fully counted in the 2020 Census, we will miss out on investments and resources that we need and deserve.
America is changing fast. But one thing that doesn’t change is that we all do better when our communities are safe, strong and healthy.
The last time we had a census was 2010, and our communities and needs are different now than they were. A lot has happened since 2010. Today we’re trying to address important issues like:
- Community Resources: Information collected in the census influences the way public officials distribute more than $800 billion in federal funds every year for services and programs like fire departments, hospitals, the national school lunch program, and community health centers.
- Jobs: Company executives use census data to identify communities where they might build a factory or office building, or open new stores. Census numbers also guide the distribution of billions of dollars in community development block grants.
- Political Representation: If states and communities are not fully counted, that could cost them a lot of political influence and power as well as money and other resources. Your state could lose a member of Congress.
That’s why it’s important to ask for a Census in 2020 that recognizes our community and helps make our County, health care, education, and political representation better.
