Census data directly affects how the federal government allocates more than $675 billion every year to communities for programs and services like Title 1, special education, school lunches, after school programs, Head Start, and more. Census data guide decisions made by states and localities, as well as the private and not-for-profit sector. Please help our students get the resources needed by being counted!
