Why the Census Matters
The 2020 Census Count Impacts Moultrie County, Illinois
Your participation in the 2020 Census helps Moultrie County avoid further losses of representation for East Central Illinois. We need an accurate count to protect our communities from the loss of vital funds. An undercount will result in fewer programs and services available to our citizens and less economic activity in our county for the next decade.
Each year, census data drives the level of federal funding for more than 55 grant programs serving rural communities throughout the U.S. These programs include agricultural support, school lunches, healthcare, highway construction, and education.
