The results of the 2020 Census will inform decisions about the allocation of hundreds of billions of dollars each year to communities across the country. This includes funding and support for school services such as special education programs, free and reduced-price lunch, classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, and Head Start. Spread the word about the impact the 2020 Census has on our children and encourage everyone to respond.

About the 2020 Census

The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. The 2020 Census will count everyone who lives in the U.S. as of April 1, 2020. Census statistics help determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and how billions of dollars in federal funds will be allocated by state, local, and federal lawmakers every year for the next 10 years.
