Census data is used in distributing billions of dollars in nutrition programs for women, infants and children—and billions more for Head Start, school lunches, temporary assistance for needy families, maternal and child health services block grants, and more.

If your community is not fully counted in the census, women, children and families will miss out on resources they need to be safe, healthy and successful.


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.
