Shape your future by completing the #2020Census today—it’s not too late!
There are only approximately 45 days left to complete the 2020 Census. Every town is an important part of the American story. Make sure Lansing’s story is told by responding to the #2020Census—the count of everyone living in the United States. When you do, you’ll also help Lansing get the most out of the American dream.
Responding Is Important for Your Community. Census responses provide data that can attract new businesses and the jobs that come with them. The data also informs where over $6 billion in federal funding is spent each year in Kansas and our communities. That includes money for things like:
- Medicare Part B
- Special education
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
- Cooperative Extension Service
- Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant
- Water and waste disposal systems for rural communities
Why Kansas 2020 Census Participation Matters https://kansascounts.org
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.
