For every Montanan counted, the State of Montana receives $2,000 a year in federal funding. Over the next ten years, that adds up to $20,000 per person counted. These funds will be used in every Montana county for medical assistance, educational support, city and county infrastructure, highway planning and over 300 additional programs.
Census data is also used to define legislative and school districts. It is also used to apportion seats in the US House of Representatives. Montana is one of the states that could gain another representative so getting a complete count is more important than ever.
