If you haven’t responded to the 2020 Census, you have until September 30 to do so.
Mandated by the United States Constitution, the census is a count of the United States population that takes place every ten years. The 2020 Census will be the 24th census conducted since 1790.
Why should I fill out my 2020 Census?
Not only does the Census help the Federal Government collect important data such as population, race, and gender, but it also plays a large role in how the government allocates funds to our communities.
Every person who fills out the Census accounts for $1,600 a year ($16,000 per decade) in federal funding for your local communities, including schools, hospitals, and fire departments.
How do I fill out my 2020 Census?
This year, for the first time, you can take the census online!
Head to 2020census.gov and enter you Census ID, which you can find in the materials mailed to you. If you don’t have those materials, click the option “If you do not have a Census ID, click here,” and you will be instructed from there.
If you aren’t able to fill the Census out online, you can simply fill out and return the mailed materials.
