3rd District Residents – Thank you for your participation in the 2020 Census!
Thanks to all who joined for our Community Census Event at the Rosenwald Building on September 9!

It’s so important for each of us complete our Census, so that we can determine for the Federal Government our population here in Illinois. It is based on that population, that we will receive federal funding for the next 10 years. Funding which will help us support schools for our children, funding to support our healthcare clinics, funding to provide good & safe roads & highways for all of us.
Take a look at the video below and make sure to be Counted today!
Take some time to visit my2020census.gov to complete your Census today! It’s quick and easy. The 2020 Census questionnaire will take 5-10 minutes to complete. It’s safe, secure, and confidential. Your information and privacy are protected. Again, your response helps to direct billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities for schools, roads, and other public services. Results from the 2020 Census will be used to determine the number of seats each state has in Congress and your political representation at all levels of government. Thank you – and please let us know if you have any questions!

Check out the Hyde Park Herald’s coverage of the 2020 Census Awareness Meeting on 3-12-20:
From the article: “The last census we had we (got) $34 billion from the federal government,” said Lowry. “As we look around, especially where a lot of us spend a lot of our time, we still don’t have enough resources. So we can’t afford to lose federal funding because we have not counted folks who should be counted.” Lowry also emphasized that there would be no citizenship question on the census. (The Supreme Court struck down the possible addition last summer.)
