Mayor Asks Kaua’i Residents to Complete Census

Mayor Kawakami is urging Kaua’i residents to complete the 2020 census if they haven’t done so already. He says getting an accurate count of residents is extremely important to the future of Kaua’i. Federal funds are allocated based on population including money for school lunches, education funds, and food stamp assistance. The mayor says every county and every state is fighting for federal dollars and if Kaua’i is undercounted money that should be coming here is going elsewhere.
