2020 Census

The 2020 Census will soon be underway and it is vital for everyone to participate. The Census, which is a once-a-decade population count, determines very important decisions, such as the number of representatives each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives, the amount of federal funds provided to states, counties and local municipalities, and which infrastructure projects get completed. With that, there are certain groups of people and areas that are at risk of not being counted, including hard-to-count rural communities, college students, those facing poverty and children under 5 years of age. Not being counted puts these groups at risk and deprives them and their communities of important public and private resources. Be sure to participate in the 2020 Census to ensure accurate funding and resources for you, your family and your community!
