What is at Stake?

Each person uncounted equals a loss of about $2,000 per year for 10 years in social safety-net benefits. In all, an undercount in Nebraska could mean a loss of $400 million over the next decade in critical social service funding. An accurate count impacts our state's ability to ensure equal representation. It also helps state and local leaders identify and address new needs for health care, education, housing, food and income security, rural access to broadband, and other services for all Nebraskans.
