How do Census funds impact MCCCD?

The census determines funding for local colleges and universities for things like federal student loans, research grants, technology, campus improvements and health and social services.

For the state of Arizona, the census impacts our daily lives, including the roads we drive on, access to healthcare, school lunch programs and even our political representation.

The census is our once in a decade chance to shape the next 10 years in Arizona.

The deadline to complete the census is April 1, 2020.
