Each year, Minnesota communities receive 15 billion dollars from the federal government on the basis of the census count. These dollars are used for Medical Assistance Program (Medicaid), federal direct student loans, Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), low income home energy assistance, and high planning and construction. Every household will have the option of responding online, by mail, or by phone.
