RESULTS OF THE CENSUS ARE USED TO:
- Determine decisions on how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to Communities for over 100 programs including Medicaid, Head Start, block grants for community mental health and SNAP (the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program.)
- Determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives
- Adjust or re-draw congressional and state legislative districts
REMEMBER: The Census determines the amount of money that our communities receive from the federal government. If we are not all counted we suffer the consequences for the next 10 years, until the next census.
