Do you have questions about the Census? As part of Councilman Curren Price’s ongoing public education efforts, he is partnering with the Mayor’s Office of the Census to host a live discussion titled “Census 101: Making South LA Count” on Thursday, June 25 at 11 a.m.
Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, participation in the 2020 Census count is more imperative than ever. With billions of dollars on the line to support communities over the next 10 years, getting an accurate count can make a world of difference.
The Census is held every 10 years to determine how much federal funding each state receives annually for education, healthcare, housing, and other social safety net programs. The Census also determines the apportionment of Congressional seats and redistricting at all levels of government.
