2020 Census
 
Making sure you are counted in the 2020 Census has an impact for the next decade. For students: Even if you have moved away from your Oakland or on-campus address, you should still complete the Census at the address you were planning to live on April 1. More information is available on the Census Bureau website. Lawmakers, business owners, and many others will use 2020 Census data to make critical decisions for the next 10 years. The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children. The results will also inform how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding are allocated to more than 100 programs, including Medicaid, Head Start, block grants for community mental health services, and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP.
