Why is the census count important for schools?

Federal Funding: The decennial census determines the amount of federal funding distributed to states for programs that impact schools, students and families.

  • Across the United States, 325 census-guided federal spending programs distributed more than $900 billion in 2016, according to the George Washington Institute of Public Policy.
  • Census-guided federal spending programs that impact schools and students include Title I grants to local educational agencies, the national school lunch and breakfast programs, special education grants, career and technical education grants, the Title IV-E foster care program, Section 8 housing assistance, Head Start programs and more.

Please help Grand View School by visiting and fill out your census to help out funding.
