Where will you be living on April 1, 2020? This is one of the most important questions you will answer this spring when the 2020 Census questionnaire arrives in your mailbox.
The importance of an accurate count cannot be overstated. It means significant money to our community. Over the next ten years, more than $5 billion in federal funding will be provided to state and local governments based on population. This is money that funds everything from the National School Lunch Program to highway planning grants. From low-income home energy assistance to Medicare Part B supplemental support. From Section 8 housing assistance payments to the Child Care and Development Fund.
