Episcopal Health Foundation joins with Bishop Andy Doyle to ask Episcopal churches to support the work of Census 2020
Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a Census to count every resident in the United States. The 2020 Census provides the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting health, housing, education, transportation, employment, and public policy.
But did you know that HEALTH is the sector that could be most affected by the census count in Texas?
A 1% undercount across the state would likely cost Texans about $280 million per year for HEALTH programs alone!
“One of our goals in the Episcopal Diocese of Texas is to meet our neighbors and support our communities. Helping with the 2020 Census is one way we can do this. By assisting with the census, we are getting to know our neighborhoods so we can serve them better. We are serving our neighborhoods so they can better be served. Our neighbors count. I hope you will join us in the 2020 Census project.”
The Rt. Rev. C. Andrew Doyle
IX Bishop of Texas
