More than $675 billion in federal funds go back to state and local governments annually through data collected by the Census. These funds help the local community by paying for federal highway planning and construction, Head Start and special education grants, the National School Lunch Program, Medicare and Medicaid and Section 8 subsidies. For each resident who doesn’t respond to the Census, Fairfax County loses $20,000 in potential funding over the course of a decade
An undercount is a very real possibility with the Census being online for the first time. Hear from experts on the corporate role to ensure a complete count and the consequences of an undercount on your business, employees, and the nonprofits your firm supports through its Corporate Social Responsibility.
