Federal funding to our community is on the line
Completing the census will help us count the number of people in our state, which is how the federal government divides tax dollars to states and communities. As of July, more than 40% of North Carolinians, over 4 million people, had not been counted, which could mean a loss of $7.4 billion dollars per year for North Carolina for health care, education, highways, and community and economic development is at risk.
An incomplete count puts representation in Congress and federal funding our state needs in jeopardy.
Encourage your friends, family, and neighbors to participate in the count. Census workers began knocking on doors on Aug. 11 to ensure we all are counted.
