The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location.

Our district and community will need an accurate count to benefit from approximately $675 billion dollars in federal funds, grants, and support to our community. This money is spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs.

Educational funding is based on census data, so making sure our community has an accurate count is essential to improving our schools and providing our community with a strong future.
