CENSUS 2020

Apply for a job with the City of Blackwell, Oklahoma here!

The Census determines how much funding and services our towns and cities receive each year for the next decade. Everyone counts. Blackwell stands to gain an estimated $1,675 per person per year.

The Census count will provide funding and services we will live with for the next 10 years, if not longer. Oklahoma stands to lose up to $1,675 per person per year, for the next 10 years in federal support for programs that use Census data such as healthcare, parks and roads, education — and more.

Oklahoma nonprofits can be effective in reaching out to their networks in hard-to-count populations. You can provide education about the benefits of Census 2020 and encourage participation.

We all win with an accurate Census count, so let’s get the word out and count everyone!

The Census has a 10-year benefit of $16,750 per person for your community.
