Nevada Census 2020 begins its march towards the 2020 Nevada Census count with a kickoff event on Thursday, January 30, 2020 at the Downtown Reno Public Library. The event is aimed at educating Washoe County residents about the benefits of participating in the Census and encouraging responses.
City of Reno Vice Mayor, Devon Reese, will be joined by City of Sparks Councilman Kristopher Dahir; District Health Officer of the Washoe County Health District, Kevin Dick; representatives for Senator Cortez-Masto and Senator Rosen; and Reno-Sparks NAACP President Lonnie Feemster.
Kerry Durmick, statewide coordinator from Nevada Census 2020, will be onsite to answer questions about the Nevada Census operation.
WHEN: 2 – 3 p.m.
Thursday, January 30, 2020
WHERE: Downtown Reno Public Library
301 S Center St, Reno, NV 89501
WHY: The event will be a part of a series of outreach efforts to drive home the message that Nevada matters in the countrywide 2020 Census, and it’s essential that every resident be counted. Data collected from the Census count will help determine how more than $675 billion of federal funding is spent each year on state-level infrastructure and services across the country. Nevada will earn $20,000 in federal funding over the next ten years for every man, woman and child who is counted.
