Dear 17th Ward,
Today is week 12 of the Census Response Period. As of today, 7,070 households in our ward have responded to the 2020 Census. This means there are about 8,641 households which have not responded! This means that the 17th Ward could potentially miss out on over $24 Million Dollars per year for schools, parks and infrastructure. We cannot afford to lose any money to build our community.
With so much that has happened to our community in the past couple of days, it is important to take a moment and fill out the census to ensure we get our fair share of dollars for our communities. So take a second for your city and go to census2020.chicago.gov.
