THE CHALLENGE

Join the effort to educate your friends, family, colleagues, and the community on the importance of filling out the 2020 Census. Many of us do not realize that by simply filling out the Census accurately, your community receives Federal Funding toward local programs based on the number of residents counted. Each of us being counted is equal to $12,000 in funding over 10 years. If 20,000 people living in Northern Virginia don’t fill out the census form, we lose $240 Million in Federal Dollars. Now that you have this knowledge, we ask that you spread the word on the importance of this Census, as it will allow our community to fund hundreds of programs such as assisted living grants, free school lunches, arts programs, parks, and recreation enhancements and many more. See our list of programs here and let us know where you’d like to see your $12,000 impact our community and have some fun with it.

STEP 1

Take a solo video or get together with friends or family to add up your impact in pledging to fill out the 2020 Census

STEP 2
