The September 30 deadline to respond to the #2020Census is fast approaching. Lynwood has a more than a 61% response rate – but we need to be at 100%.
Did you know the federal and state governments rely on the census count to distribute federal funds for infrastructure (street improvements), education (funding for schools), housing and food assistance for those in need, programs for youth and seniors (meals and recreational programs) and public safety.
If Lynwood doesn’t get an accurate count, we could lose out on millions of federal dollars that will help our community. And it’s not only federal funds that are affected. Your representation in Congress also depends on an accurate count. If California is undercounted, we could lose Congressional seats to other states. That means a low Census count diminishes your voice in Congress.
If you haven’t responded to the Census yet, do it today!

If you have responded to the 2020 Census – we need your help. Make sure your family, friends and neighbors respond. Ask them if they have responded to the Census and if not, show them how. Their participation benefits all of us.
Look out for the Census Caravan coming to Lynwood neighborhoods on Wednesday, September 16, 4-6pm. There will be prizes, so stay tuned – more details to come!
It takes just 10 minutes to help your family and your community. We’re counting on you.
