Have You Been Counted?
Census data helps determine where more than $45 billion in annual federal funding goes in New Jersey. To make sure ALL the students in our great state are counted, it’s important to complete the #2020Census
Education is the key to our future – New Jersey youth deserve a high-quality education, with the best resources.
Did you know….
- Census data we collect now affects New Jersey children for the next 10 years, we need to count ALL children NOW, no matter their age – even newborn babies. Not counting every child has consequences that will impact their lives and schooling through 2030 – for a newborn, that means 2020 Census data affects their education through at least 4th grade!
- Census data impacts federal funds that communities receive every year for critical programs and services for schools, students and younger children. These programs include Special Education, Head Start, after-school programs and classroom technology. Census also impacts food assistance, including free and reduced-price school lunches.
- Census data affects scholarships and grants for students too – grants and loans made possible by federal funding include Federal Direct Student Loans, Title I Grants to schools, Career and Tech Education Grants, Federal Pell Grant Program and Special Ed Grants.
Completing the Census is an investment in our students, and the resources and structure they need to succeed. We are empowered now to help shape the future for this next generation.
