The Council has created a Census 2020 Committee to ensure that everyone is counted in our child care community, especially children under 5, who are typically under-counted. Every 10 years, data is compiled for each household in the United States through a Census Survey. Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are all based on the results. It is vital for everyone to participate in the Census so that our communities get a fair share of the more than $675 billion annually that is allocated based on Census results. This funding supports schools, hospitals, public works, child care and other vital programs.
