Public spending on transportation infrastructure hit nearly $300 billion in 2017. Billions of dollars in federal transportation spending is distributed using census data, including capital investment grants for public transit and money for highway planning and construction.

State and community leaders use census data to help determine when bus routes need to be changed or added to match up with where people live and work.

If your community is not fully counted in the census, it could miss out on transportation options people need to get to work and school.

#CountMeIn

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.
