CENSUS 2020 - It's Coming

Census Day is April 1, 2020 - Count Me In!

Every home should receive information to access the census from starting in mid-March 2020.  Here's why your participation is important:

  • Census data determine how more than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed in states and communities each year to support essential state and local programs. FOR EACH PERSON COUNTED, states/communities receive nearly $2,000 per year or $20,000 per decade.
  • State officials use census data to redraw the boundaries of their congressional districts.
  • Census data help businesses, researchers and communities make important decisions that affect new roads and funding for school lunches.
  • The results determine how many seats each state gets in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Please complete your form by April 1, 2020, and help your community.
