Complete Count Efforts Underway in Some States and Communities

Across the country some states and communities are gearing up to encourage their local populations to participate in the 2020 Census count with local dollars behind the effort. But the effort, so far, is spotty.

Stateline traces national activity and noted the state of California has already funded tens of millions of dollars for its own in-state outreach.  Another article, published by Reuters, adds additional detail to these efforts.

Meanwhile, in Houston, similar outreach is already underway.

These efforts will be important since both political representation and billions of federal dollars for such things as Medicaid, highways and roads, school lunch programs, housing assistance and Head Start are guided by census numbers.
