Private developers as well as public officials rely on census data to identify places where the population is growing and new investments in housing are needed.

Census numbers are used to distribute billions of dollars every year related to housing, including Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers and other housing assistance programs.

If your community is not fully counted in the 2020 Census, more people will miss out on affordable places to live.


Communities that don’t get fully counted in 2020 will miss out for the next ten years. This is the time to get involved. The Census counts. So do you.
