The Census is coming in 2020, and an accurate count is really important to the City of Littleton. The Census directly impacts funding Littleton will receive over the next decade. Population counts determine the annual allocation of more than $800 billion in federal investment to states, counties and cities. This includes Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) that have been used to rebuild many sidewalks with ADA ramps in the northeast part of Littleton. CDBG funds allotted to Littleton have also been used to support Doctor’s Care, providing medical treatment to uninsured and under insured residents. Census counts also help determine areas eligible for housing assistance and rehabilitation loans. Medicaid, Section 8 housing assistance, the National School Lunch Program and Medicare Part B are all programs whose funding levels are based on Census counts. An accurate count equips Littleton for the future. You count, be counted!
