The results of the 9 question Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding affect communities for the next decade. Think of your morning commute: Census results influence highway planning and construction, as well as grants for buses and other public transit systems. Or think of your local schools: the Census affects 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 restore wildlife, prevent child abuse, and to provide housing assistance for older adults. To learn about other affected programs, download this report.
