Getting the count right matters! Arkansas receives six to seven billion annually in federal dollars based on the results of the national census. These funds support Medicaid and grants for transportation, education, public housing, community development, and dozens of other critical federal programs.
Low participation in the census has grave consequences. Every uncounted Arkansan means a loss of $2,500 for each year for the next ten-years and even a 1% under count can add up to $750 million in lost federal funds.
