It’s not too late to respond to the 2020 Census!

The Census will determine congressional representation, inform federal funding and provide data that will impact our communities. The results will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes healthcare, education, infrastructure and employment.

The results of this once-a-decade count determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives by congressional and state legislative districts. Over the next decade, lawmakers, business owners, and many others will use 2020 Census data to make critical decisions. The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children.

The results will also inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to more than 100 programs, including Medicaid, Head Start, block grants for community mental health services, and more.
