Census 2020 Questionnaire

Words saying United States Census 2020

The City in DeFuniak Springs, FL needs your help, and we urge all citizens to complete and submit your 2020 Census ASAP.  Here’s why your input is so important.  This information is provided by 2020Census.gov

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.

Curious about what other programs are impacted by census data? Download this report to see a full list.
