An accurate and complete 2020 Census count is vital to Los Angeles County. Census data is used to determine funding for programs and projects ranging from early childhood education to senior nutrition.
One of the most powerful things you can do for your community is to participate in the Census. Your participation helps ensure your community receives the funding it deserves for important services and programs. An accurate and complete 2020 Census count is vital to Los Angeles County, as Census data is used to determine how more than $675 billion in federal government resources will be distributed each year for the next decade to states and localities.
Census data is used to determine where schools, roads, hospitals, child care centers, senior centers and other services should be built. Key federal programs rely on census data to allocate funding and resources for programs like Medicaid, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), Medicare Part B, highway planning and construction, Section 8 housing, Title I school grants, Special Education Grants (IDEA), State Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and Head Start.
If people are not counted, L.A. County could risk cuts to building projects and local programs our community relies on: new hospitals, updating roads and bridges, school lunches, health clinics, immunizations for children, early childhood education, and senior nutrition programs.
