2020 CENSUS ~ YOUR RESPONSE MATTERS!


WHAT IS THE 2020 CENSUS?

The 2020 Census counts every person living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.

WHY IT MATTERS:

The census can shape many different aspects of OUR community!

From… Health Clinics, Fire Departments, Schools, even Roads and Highways.

  • Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year.
  • The results determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.
  • It’s mandated by the U.S. Constitution in Article 1, Section 2: The U.S. has counted its population every 10 years since 1790.
