The population count determines the amount of funds a community will receive for over 100 programs, including school lunches, Medicaid, Head Start, grants for community mental health services, SNAP, highway construction, hospitals, fire departments, housing assistance for older adults,and many other needs. The results of the census shape the future of a community for ten years. Please click the headline to find the links to complete the census.
