MYTH: It's not a big deal if I'm not counted in the 2020 Census
Every person counted matters. Each individual has a tremendous effect on funding for vital programs and services used by residents of Cuyahoga County. For every person NOT counted in Ohio, $1,814 is lost in funds that would go toward these programs and resources. Programs that would be affected include:
  • Medicaid
  • Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or "food stamps"
  • Medicare Part B
  • Special Education Grants 
  • National School Lunch Program
  • Head Start/Early Head Start
  • Foster Care
  • Health Care Programs (Community, Migrant, Homeless, Public Housing)

MYTH: There is a citizenship question on the 2020 Census
There is NO question regarding citizenship on the 2020 Census forms at this time. The Supreme Court found this question illegal to add after it was proposed by the Trump asministration.

MYTH: My information can be taken by the government and used against me
