Help Bring Funding to your hospitals and Schools
Census data is used to extend billions of dollars in funding for hospitals, school lunch programs, Medicaid and resources that are needed every year, especially in uncertain times like now. Make sure everyone in your home is counted!
Be Part of the Count
Now more than ever, we should all respond to the Census online, by phone, or by mail. Responses are kept confidential, and it’s easy to respond in 12 non-English languages. The Census count directs federal funding for the next ten years to our community.
Every 10 years the U.S. government conducts a census.
Responses are confidential as a matter of law. Only statistical information can be made public. Census employees face fines of 250,000 if they share personal information.
Important services depend upon an accurate count of where people live. These include the provision of federal money for education, health and other benefits, as well as representation in Federal and State legislatures. In mid-March, households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census.
By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding:
- By phone
- By mail
