Between March 12 and March 20, most households will receive an initial invitation to respond to the 2020 Census. You can respond to the Census in one of three ways: online, by phone or by mail. If you do not respond immediately, the Census will continue to follow up with you via the mail and in-person. Households that don't respond immediately will receive reminders and will eventually receive a paper questionnaire.



Why is it important?

The 2020 Census will help determine the distribution of more than $675 billion in federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities. That money is spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs for our community and its residents.

Equal Representation

It’s your Constitutional right to be counted for fair representation in Congress. An accurate count also affects your representation in local government.

Better Community

Census data helps invest in our community. New roads, businesses, schools, emergency services and more depend on a complete count of residents.

Fair Funding

Census data determines the flow of millions of dollars of funding into our community to pay for critical programs and services. An accurate count of all residents ensures we receive our fair share.
