2020 is a census year, when all of the people living in the United States are counted. The census is important because it determines everything from congressional representation to the distribution of billions of dollars in federal funds. In 2010, Iowa lost funding due to an undercount of young children. An estimated 4,726 children were missed. Some of the education programs that have lost funds in Iowa each year since 2015 by undercounting include: Special Education Grants, National School Lunch Program, Title 1 Grants, Head Start, School Breakfast Program.

April 1 is Census Day: Households can respond online, by mail or by phone
June-July 2020: Census takers go door to door to count people who have not responded to the 2020 Census.
