More on counting young children in the 2020 Census
There are many important reasons to make sure our young children are counted in the 2020 Census. The data collected by the 2020 Census distributes billions of dollars of federal funds that impact young children including food assistance, Head Start, childcare, public schools, children’s health insurance, and more. It is important to count young children in 2020 because it will impact the dollars available over the next 10 years for those children as they grow. Find out more on the Census website.
