2020 CENSUS - An opportunity to shape the future of our community!

In mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail.

Why is 2020 CENSUS so important?

The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location.

Over the next decade, lawmakers, business owners, and many others will use 2020 Census data to make critical decisions. The results will show where communities need new schools, new clinics, new roads, and more services for families, older adults, and children.

The 2020 Census will be valuable to businesses, as the results will provide a rich set of data on the communities they serve, including population trends and growth projections. Business owners rely on census results to make decisions, such as where to open new stores, restaurants, factories, or offices, where to expand operations, where to recruit employees, and which products and services to offer.

The list goes on, including programs to support rural areas, to restore wildlife, to prevent child abuse, to prepare for wildfires, and to provide housing assistance for older adults.

Collecting responses

Invitations to respond to the 2020 Census will be delivered between March 12-20. Once you receive that invitation, you can respond online, by phone, or by mail.

April 1: Census Day is observed nationwide. By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. When you respond to the census, you’ll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.

Starting in May 2020, the Census Bureau will begin following up in person with homes that have not responded to the census.

Now that you know, let’s spread the word!

The 2020 Census is more than a population count, it is an opportunity to shape the future of our community.

The Census Bureau is challenging everyone to help ensure a complete and accurate count in 2020. Share information on your friends, family and neighbors about the upcoming census and why it’s important to respond.
