Bloomington, IL – November 6, 2019 – The 2020 decennial census is around the corner on April 1st, 2020. Every person living in the United States is required to respond to the decennial census. It is imperative that we get the most accurate count of residents as possible in McLean County and in our state. Census participation impacts political representation, and programs and services in our community. $675 billion federal dollars are allocated per year to state and local governments based on census counts. That funding goes toward critical programs that support education, housing, health and transportation services in our community. Our community loses out on critical federal funding with each resident who does not get counted.
