While we are home following the stay at home order and keeping each other safe, please consider taking about 10 minutes to complete the 2020 U.S. Census questionnaire. According to a 2017 George Washington University report, Illinois receives about $34 billion a year in federal funds that are distributed based on population. Every uncounted resident can cost the state of Illinois and its units of local government $18,000 a year in federal funding.
Illinois is expected to lose one Congressional seat due to the loss of population over the last ten years. An undercount in the 2020 Census could cost Illinois an additional seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Please take a few minutes and participate in the 2020 Census!
