More People Means More Needs.
Sacramento wants to support every resident. To do this, we first need to know how many residents we have! Each person equals countless new youth centers, additional SNAP and Cal Fresh options, Section 8 vouchers, MediCare funding, and more.
Sacramento’s children need our help.
Sacramento school funding is decided based on many factors, but one of the most important is the number of students. Knowing how many students we need to support means more school lunch programs, S-CHIP, foster care programs, and special education grants.
How’s it looking out there?
Sacramento’s roads, highways, residential areas, and housing need some help. To make sure we can improve your neighborhood, we first need to know how many people live in each area. More people means more funding for Section 8 Housing vouchers and highway planning and construction.
