ReWA Partners with Census 2020

Every 10 years, the U.S. counts every person living in the country through a national Census. The results inform how federal funding is distributed to:

  • schools
  • affordable housing
  • hospitals
  • public transportation
  • Congressional seats, and more.

In the last Census, an under-count of the immigrant and refugee population in Washington state cost us hundreds of millions of dollars in crucial funding for our communities.

ReWA is a proud community partner for Census 2020.  Our multilingual case managers help clients complete the Census form, so we can all be counted.

Call ReWA to make an appointment: 206 957-2029
