Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau is tasked with counting every resident in the nation. More than 70 federal programs that benefit California that include funding for programs and services like Medi-Cal, school lunches, food stamps, Head Start, SNAP, unemployment benefits, and programs and services that benefit seniors and disabled veterans. These funds allow our children and families the opportunity to thrive and be successful.
CNC is committed to use our expertise and resources to engage with the hardest to count Californians in rural communities in the 2020 Census. CNC created its “Cuenta Conmigo” program to make sure that our families know how to fill out the short census questionnaire, understand that their privacy will be upheld by the law, and that they can count on us and partners for good and timely information when they need it.
Each person counted in the 2020 Census can bring in at least $1,000 in funding every year until the next Census count in 2030. Check out these videos to learn how 10 minutes can shape OUR next 10 years!
