2020 Census

KC-Logo-Instagram

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. 

By April 1, 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Every household will have the opportunity to respond online, by phone or by mail.

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!
