The 2020 Census is more important than ever before. An accurate and complete 2020 Census count is vital to the City of Lynwood, Los Angeles County, the State of California and the United States. Census data is used to determine funding for programs and projects ranging from early childhood education to senior nutrition as well as the number of US Representatives from each state.
If people are not counted, Los Angeles County could risk cuts to building projects and local programs on which our community relies: new hospitals, updating roads and bridges, school lunches, health clinics, immunizations for children, early childhood education, and senior nutrition programs.
