Once a decade, America comes together to participate in the decennial census, creating national awareness of the census and statistics. This census provides the basis for reapportioning Congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing billions of dollars in federal funding to support your state, county, and community’s vital programs.
The Census dictates what funding each state, county, and city receives for the upcoming years. A thriving population also attracks new businesses, educational experiences, entertainment options, and many other opportunites. Also, if we as a community are under counted we potentially lose up to $46,845 in federal funding over the next 10 years.
