It’s never been more important to ensure that everyone in Orange County is counted.

Results from the 2020 Census will help determine how money is allocated to improve our schools, fix our roads and highways, and to provide vital programs and resources in the community.

In Orange County, the 2020 Census will determine how money is allocated toward schools, free lunch programs, college grants, housing vouchers, and more – that’s why Orange County United Way is encouraging everyone to take the 2020 Census.
