UIC partners with IDHS through $20M census initiative in Illinois

A decreased share of federal funding and fewer seats in the U.S. House of Representatives for the next decade are among the outcomes that can occur due to an undercount of residents in the 2020 census.

To help avoid negative consequences of an inaccurate final census count, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and the Illinois Department of Human Services, or IDHS, announced a $20 million investment that will go to 30 local community and government organizations serving as regional intermediaries for coordinated census mobilization initiatives across the state.

Through an intergovernmental partnership with IDHS, the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs will have a leading role in these efforts aimed at ensuring all Illinois residents are counted in the 2020 census.
