FINANCE AND GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Troy Schulte, City Manager and Ramona Ferris, Madison West Consulting, spoke on this ordinance. Every 10 years, the U.S. Census counts every resident in the nation. A complete and accurate count of Kansas City’s population is essential to the City because the data collected by the census is used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to local communities. Several federal programs that benefit Kansas City, including transportation and infrastructure, disaster relief, and health and human services, use census numbers as part of their funding formulas. Kansas City’s communication and outreach strategy for the 2020 Census will focus on both geographic areas and demographic populations who are “least likely to respond”. These areas and populations are commonly referred to as “hard-to-count (HTC)” areas.
