Census 2020: April 1 – July 31, 2020

“The stakes are high for the upcoming 2020 census as data is used to determine political representation as well as funding for critical programs that serve our most vulnerable members of our community.  With billions of dollars in federal funding at stake, the City of Westland is committed to making sure all residents in every neighborhood and of every background are counted and accurately represented.
 ~ Mayor William R. Wild

An accurate and complete 2020 Census count is vital to the City of Westland. Census data is used to determine funding for programs and projects ranging from early childhood education to senior services.

One of the most powerful things you can do for our community is to participate in the Census. Your participation helps ensure Westland receives the funding it deserves for important services and programs. An accurate and complete 2020 Census count is vital to Westland, as Census data is used to determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal government resources will be distributed each year to the next decade to states and cities.

Census data is used to determine where schools, roads, hospitals, child care centers, businesses, senior centers and other services should be built. Key federal programs rely on Census data to allocate funding and resources for programs like Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicare, highway planning and road construction, housing, school and education grants, healthcare programs and Head Start.

If people are not counted, Westland could risk cuts to building projects and local programs the our community relies on: new hospitals, updating roads and bridges, school lunches, health clinics, immunizations for children, early childhood education, and senior nutrition programs.

Participation in the census is the right and responsibility of every Westland resident.
