Why The 2020 Census Is Important

The census helps decide how much money the San Fernando Valley will get for important things like School, Hospitals, Affordable Housing and Job Programs. Each person counted in the census means more money will go to our community for the next 10 years. Participating in the census means we are claiming our community’s fair share of federal money.

Help Get The Word Out About The Census In The SFV

We Count LA is a comprehensive outreach and communications campaign committed to promoting census participation among Los Angeles County’s diverse communities. We Count LA is made up of dozens of organizations across LA County working hard every day to ensure everyone in Los Angeles County is counted. Our outreach partners are located in eight regions across LA County and work with 16 different hard-to-count populations.

2020 Census #WeCountLA

There is a need for Census outreach in hard to count communities like the San Fernando Valley, an area of the city with LRS (Low Response Scores). 

A complete count for us means being able to secure more federal money for our community.

This is why, as co-conveners for the San Fernando Valley Region for the We Count LA Committee, it is important that everyone in the San Fernando Valley gets counted for the 2020 Census.
