2020 PSA link from Mayor (short video under a minute)
“It has always been a priority for me to make sure everyone in Westland has a voice—everyone counts so in 2020, be counted!” – Mayor Wild
Westland and the rest of America gets just one chance each decade to count its population. The U.S. Census Bureau counts every resident in the United States as part of the decennial census that started in 1790, as a mandate by the U.S. Constitution. One chance, make it count!
We count our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and most importantly distributing more than half a billion dollars in federal funds annually to support vital programs - impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, food assistance, health care and public policy.
If you count on
- HEALTH CARE
- FOOD ASSISTANCE
