Your participation in the 2020 Census is a chance to be counted!  It’s a chance for each and every one of us to help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding will be allocated into communities over the next 10 years, regardless of size or location.

 The census results influence highway planning and construction, as well as grants for buses and other public transit systems.

 Also, the census results will help determine how money is allocated for the Head Start program and for grants that support teachers and special education.

 The list goes on, including programs to support rural areas, to restore wildlife, to prevent child abuse, to prepare for wildfires, and to provide housing assistance for older adults.

 Take the time now to complete the Census.  Do it for your community, for your families and for yourselves.  Go to UNITED STATES CENSUS 2020 for more information.
