Why the Census is Important

If you want to support these programs in your community, you must be counted!

Information from the census is used by federal, state and local governments to make funding decisions that affect people with disabilities. Having enough money for programs and services for people with disabilities depends on having the right information.

Everyone needs to be counted to make sure the government has the right information to support funding important services such as:

Medicare and Medicaid

Health Centers

SNAP and WIC Benefits

School Lunches


Individuals with Disabilities Education Act

Head Start Programs

Child Care and Foster Care

Section 8 Housing Vouchers

Infrastructure, Transportation, Roads and Bridges

And more . . .
