TALLAHASSEE - The 2010 U.S. Census is right around the
corner. Florida Housing encourages all Floridians to do your part by completing
and returning your mandatory Census forms.
Participation in the Census impacts us all and, ultimately, helps
determine how more than $400 billion in federal funding will be distributed to
critical areas of need. Examples of funding areas include public housing,
hospitals, job-training centers, emergency services and public works projects,
just to name a few. The data collected by the Census also helps determine the
number of seats Florida has in the U.S. House of Representatives.
When you add it all up, it's easy to see why we all need to do our
part to make sure that every person is counted.

important information about the Census, including frequently asked questions,
details about the form and more.
