Everyone Counts and Everyone Should Be Counted: The 2020 Census and Why It Matters
Presented by the National Health Care for the Homeless Council
March 18, 2020 | 1-2 p.m. CT
Once a decade, this nation comes together to participate in the decennial census, creating national awareness of the census and statistics. This census provides the basis for reapportioning Congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing billions of dollars in federal funding to support your state, county, and community’s vital programs.
It is important for everyone to participate in the 2020 Census including people experiencing homelessness, but without an address how can one be counted? The Council is collaborating with Community Action Partnership to sponsor a webinar on the 2020 Census and the importance of ensuring all citizens are counted.
