The Census is critical for determining democratic representation, federal funding and more.  Experts estimate that each individual counted represents $1,500 in annual federal funding into our community. Our committee is meeting.  Please provide your email below or email Census2020@gailborden.info to get on the mailing list to learn about community meetings and census activity updates. 

If you or your organization has not yet filled out the form about how you can help with this critical effort, please take a few minutes and fill it out.

Thank you, Committee Chairs, Laura Valdez-Wilson (City of Elgin), Denise Raleigh (Gail Borden Public Library District), Karen Fox, (Community Volunteer & Gail Borden Public Library Foundation Member)

From the Census Bureau –

“The census asks questions that provide a snapshot of the nation.

Census results affect your voice in government, how much funding

your community receives, and how your community plans for the future.

When you fill out the census, you help:

. Determine how many seats your state gets in Congress.

. Guide how more than $675 billion in federal funding is distributed to

states and communities each year.

. Create jobs, provide housing, prepare for emergencies, and build schools,

roads and hospital”
