Getting an accurate #2020Census
count affects the city in so many ways -- from federal grant funding to disaster recovery to school programs.
Our Census count helps determine the amount of federal grant dollars we receive for all types of programs -- and it affects us for at least the next 10 years. To give a sense of the type of federal grants the city receives:
HUD CDBG - $1,214,844 in FY 20
HOME - $275,681 in FY 20
FTA - $1,652,442 in FY 20 (public transit)
These grants are our federal tax dollars coming back to Galveston. We hope you can see why it’s so vital that you complete the Census! #2020vision
