Missouri Counts: 2020 Census

The 2020 Census is our chance to make sure our hard-earned tax dollars make their way back to Missouri. For every adult and every child that is not counted in the census, our state will lose $1,300 in federal dollars every year. Money that can go into roads and bridges, hospitals and schools. Respond to the 2020 Census. Because Missouri counts and so do you. Learn more about the importance of the 2020 Census and Aging Ahead’s plans to help ensure a complete count of older adults. #MissouriCounts
