When you respond to the census, you help the community get its fair share of the nearly $700 billion per year in federal funds spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs. Federal funds, grants, and support to states, counties, and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race, and other factors. The North Miami Beach community benefits the most when the census counts everyone. Be counted.
