Challenges & Opportunities for Cleveland in the 2020 Census

Levin College Monday Morning Briefing:

Challenges & Opportunities for Cleveland in the 2020 Census

Clear and accurate Census data is the life blood for a strong Ohio. But inadequate funding as well as a series of vital policy decisions could place Ohio’s communities at risk of an inaccurate census count, limiting their political power and federal funding for the next decade.

An undercount would mean huge problems for Ohio and communities throughout the state. Ohio is at risk losing political influence as Ohio could lose a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Furthermore, over $21 billion in federal funding is distributed in Ohio based on the Census for critical programs like Medicaid, the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP), and Head Start. So many children and families in our community depend on these important services, therefore we must do all we can to minimize that risk in 2020.

The Children’s Defense Fund-Ohio has been raising the flag on these challenges, educating decision makers, advocates, media, and the public and pulling together key stakeholders to ensure a fair and accurate census count.
