Help Fund Your Community
When you respond to the census, you help ensure that your community receives its fair share of the more than $675 billion per year in federal funds spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs.
Funding is based on population totals and your community benefits the most when the census counts everyone. For example, if 90% of Lombardians complete their Census, that's still 10% going under-reported. That would cause the Village to lose out on more than $7.8 million over the next 10 years!
