The 2020 Census is here, and we all have an important role to play in ensuring everyone is counted—especially children. An estimated five percent of kids under the age of 5 were not counted in the 2010 Census, the highest of any age group. For every child missed by the Census, about $2,000 a year in federal program funding is lost, resulting in a loss to important programs and services that support children and families. So, let’s keep kids talking, reading, singing, drawing and playing, by helping to ensure that ALL KIDS COUNT! Visit allkidscountsjc.com for more information.
