The 2020 Census
The goal of the census is to count every person living in the United States, once, only once and in the right place. Article I, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution mandates that this population and housing count occur every 10 years. Census data guide how more than $675 billion of federal funding is distributed to states and communities each year.
Ensure Your Community Counts
If 1% of the Kansas population is uncounted in the 2020 Census, the state of Kansas could miss receiving approximately $603,990,400 in federal funding over a 10-year period. Ensure you count, ensure your community counts, and ensure Kansas Counts by participating in the 2020 Census!
Black and African Americans are among the most undercounted populations on the U.S. census. If you’re undercounted, then your communities will be underfunded and underserved. You can help reverse this trend by participating in the 2020 Census, which will help Kansas communities receive the funding and support needed to provide vital services for all.
