Why is this important to the State of Michigan?
Michigan loses about $1,800 in federal funding per person that is not counted. The programs included in this are Medicaid, nutrition assistance, highway construction, planning, Foster Care and Child Care grants.
Less people reported equals less power to Michigan in congress.
Minorities and children have always been under reported by a huge margin.
It is important to educate, engage, and empower in the 2020 Census so that Michigan can get everyone counted.
