WHY THE CENSUS IS IMPORTANT
The Census determines levels of funding received for more than 125 federal programs in our community each year. Some of these programs include student pell grants, highway projects, nutritional programs, child welfare services, mental health services, domestic violence assistance, housing and adult care funds. Without an accurate count, the Lawton community may be well underfunded for the next 10 years.
Citizens are advised to complete their Census by 9/30/20. Respond digitally or learn how to do so through other avenues here: https://2020census.gov/
