Reminder: Completing your census is important for local funding

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), Wisconsin counties on average stand to lose $22,170 in federal funding over the next decade ($2,217/year) per person not counted. NCSL utilized data from “Counting for Dollars 2020,” a study published in February 2020 by Andrew Reamer of the George Washington Institute of Public Policy (GWIPP). The Census also provides the basis for reapportioning Wisconsin’s Congressional seats and as a foundation for the state legislature to draw Congressional districts and state legislative districts.

It takes only minutes. Please do your part and complete the U.S. Census.
