Springville Events

WHY DO YOU COUNT? Why does Springville count? We "count" because a proper and complete count impacts funding for important programs, such as (but not limited to): Title I grants for our schools, Special Ed grants, Head Start Program, Child Care & Development Fund, SNAP (the most important resource to prevent hunger and malnutrition), National School Lunch Program, WIC, Medicaid, Child Health Insurance (CHIP), Health Center Program, Section 8 Housing, and Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). You may not utilize these programs, but by your participation in the 2020 Census, you help the city, county and state report accurate numbers and therefore, ensure proper representation for our state and appropriate allocation of funds to the previously mentioned programs which impact our children most. YOU COUNT! Participate in the 2020 Census
