It is very important for everyone to be counted in the 2020 Census. The census is used to determine Congressional representation and allocate billions of dollars in federal funding that supports our schools, hospitals, infrastructure developments, and other community-based services. Local government, foundations, businesses, educators, and others, rely on census information to make important decisions about local policies, funding distribution, where to start businesses, and more. The participation of every resident in the census will help make sure that our region receives the federal funds that it needs to serve everyone equitably.
Everyone is encouraged to complete their census by filling in the Census Form online, by telephone by calling 1-844-330-2020, or by mailing back the paper questionnaire sent to your home. If you haven’t yet completed the 2020 Census, why wait? Complete the census today!
The deadline to complete the census is Wednesday, September 30, 2020.
