Our February 11, 2020 Healthy Congregations Learning Community webinar features Blanca Soto, Southwest Kansas Campaign Director, covering Why the Census Matters: Ensuring Everyone is Counted. The webinar also highlights special HC grant opportunities and program updates.
The recording is available below. Presentation slides: 2-11-2020 Webinar.
Every 10 years, the Census Bureau takes a count of all people living in the United States, but many Kansas communities and populations are at risk of being undercounted. The census affects business planning, community development, funding for essential community programs (an estimated $4.5 billion in federal funding for Kansas) and our representation in Congress. Faith leaders are our trusted voices in the community. You know how to reach your congregation and members; hard-to-count families, individuals and children. If your team is interested in ensuring everyone is counted this webinar outlines practical ways your congregation can get involved! Learn more at KansasCounts.org.Back to All News
