Government officials urge Nevadans to fill out the Census because for every person counted, the state will receive $2,000 each year for ten years. The money goes directly to help fund communities to stay healthy, safe and educated. If everyone in Nevada is counted, the state could receive over $67 billion in federal funding over ten years. Funding programs include, but not limited to:

  • Medicaid
  • Health Care Centers
  • Nutrition Services for Senior Citizens
  • School breakfast programs
  • Head Start
  • Pell Grants
  • Career and Technical Education Grants
  • Highway Planning and Construction
  • Water & Waste Disposal Systems for Rural Communities

In addition, the U.S Census Bureau is adjusting the 2020 Census operations in light of public health concerns:

  • Field operations will now begin June 1, 2020
  • The deadline for field data collections and self-response has been extended to Oct. 31, 2020
  • This will allow for apportionment counts to be delivered to the President by April 30, 2021 and no later than July 31, 2021
