Pueblo County is better when everybody counts, and Pueblo Cooperative Care Center has partnered with the U.S. Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census! As a partner, we will be working to ensure that Pueblo County is accurately counted and represented, with a goal of reaching residents with important and helpful information about the Census. Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau undertakes the task of counting all the people residing in the United States. This count affects the allocation of funding for our community’s public resources (e.g., roads, hospitals, schools), how we plan for the future, and our voice in government. For the first time, in 2020 the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online. This process will be both quick and secure, and residents will still be able to respond by mail as in previous years. An accurate count means that communities in Pueblo County receive the funding, services, and business support they deserve and need. In Colorado, total program obligations are over $8 Billion and include Medicaid, Medicare, highway planning and construction, housing vouchers, Colorado Children’s Health Insurance programs, Head Start and Early Head Start programs, special education grants (IDEA), Title 1 Grants, school lunch programs, housing assistance payments, health center programs, Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC), foster care, Low Income Home Energy Assistance (LEAP) and Child Care and Development Fund Entitlement. We need you to make this work – and you can help!
