The 2020 Census is the official count of everyone in the U.S. once every ten years. The census counts everyone once, only once, and in the right place.
Being counted is important for our community, city, and state. For every person counted in the census, our state receives approximately $1,475 in federal funding annually, or $14,750 over a decade.
A complete and accurate count is essential for Idaho, as it helps determine where federal funds go for crucial services and programs we all rely on such as Medicare, Headstart, Reduced School Lunches, transportation grants, emergency preparedness and much more.
