 CA Census  

Why is the 2020 Census important for Veterans?

  • Census data helps veterans, their families and their communities by shaping the equitability of many government and community programs.
  • The 2020 Census will help decide how billions of dollars of funding for programs reach our families. Your answers will help determine funding for dozens of programs that provide essential resources to Californians.
  • Census data determines funding allocations for schools, childcare programs, road maintenance projects, and social assistance programs.
  • An accurate count is especially crucial for veterans in rural communities, those with disabilities, and those at risk of homelessness.
  • Data from the 2020 Census will help the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs plan programs and assess emerging needs for veterans.
