The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds 
of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities 
every year for the next decade. That funding shapes 
many different aspects of every community, no matter the 
size, no matter the location.

Think of your morning commute: Census results influence 
highway planning and construction, as well as grants for buses, 
subways, and other public transit systems.

Or think of your local schools: Census results help determine 
how money is allocated for the Head Start program and for 
grants that support teachers and special education.

The list goes on, including programs to support rural areas, 
to restore wildlife, to prevent child abuse, to prepare for wildfires, 
and to provide housing assistance for older adults.
