The Census is here! Why it is vitally important that you respond!
We all know how important funding is to support our state and local programs, so we are supporting the Census Bureau 2020 informational initiative to explain the importance of every head in Orange County being counted. Federal support is crucial to assist our population and Orange County is losing Billions of dollars in support due to inaccurate head counts from the 2010 census.
Please join us to see how you can help spread the word so that OC gets the funding necessary to support vital programs such as SNAP, Medicaid, Medicare part B – Supplemental Insurance, Highway Planning and Section 8 Housing vouchers, National School Lunch program just to name a few.
