The census is a count of all persons living in the United States that is conducted every ten years and is required by the U.S. Constitution. The census is used to determine the number of seats each state has in the House of Representatives, how federal and state legislative districts are redrawn, and the appropriation of federally funded programs.

2009 Census Data

From the preliminary poverty estimates below, Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) can find out if they will have more or less eligibility for Title I funds in school year 2011-2012. However, these preliminary estimates do not include other non-census factors (like foster, neglected and delinquent counts) used to calculate Title I allocations.

There are 4 levels of Title I grants: Basic, Concentration, Targeted and Education Finance Incentive Grants (EFIG). Each level has eligibility criteria that the school, LEA and/or state must meet in order to qualify for the grant. The Title I funds are allocated through statutory formulas that are based primarily on census poverty estimates and the cost of education in each state.
