In 2020, the United States Census will be conducted primarily online for the first time. The results will allocate billions of dollars in federal funding to local communities over the next decade. By April 1, 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Everyone household will have the opportunity to respond
The U.S. Census is required by law (U.S. Constitution, Article 1, Section 2) and has been conducted every 10 years since 1790. The 2020 Census will count every person living in the United Sates and five U.S. territories - once, only once, and in the right place.
Participation in the 2020 Census ensures your community is represented fairly and receives their share in the distribution of more than $6 billion in federal funds to Kansas annually. Every 10 years, results from the U.S. Census are used to reapportion congressional seats. The 2020 Census will determine how many congressional seats the state of Kansas will hold for the next decade. When it comes to federal funding, participation in the U.S. Census ensures your community benefits from your hard-earned tax dollars. That could mean more funding for our schools, roads and highways, public health, affordable housing programs, and so much more.
