How the 2020 Census Affects Your Community

Census data help ensure that your family and community can thrive by affecting how more than $1.5 trillion in federal funds are allocated yearly to communities.

Each person counted in your community means additional federal dollars that end up there. On the other hand, each person who doesn’t participate in census costs your community thousands of dollars each year. Since the census happens only once every 10 years, this loss will happen every year through 2030, adding up to a lot of lost resources.
