The Census is a pillar of our democracy that has been conducted every 10 years since 1790. It ensures that all are equally counted so they may be best represented at every level of government. The Census is critical to ensure that your community gets its fair share of over $1 trillion in funding and resources for the schools, hospitals, infrastructure and local businesses you rely on every day. While many of us are spending more time with our families indoors, we can use this time to help your community get the resources it needs by completing the Census. You can respond to the Census:

To be clear – there will be NO citizenship question on the 2020 Census and you will NOT be asked for your social security number or your immigration status. If you are filling out the census for your home, you should count everyone who is living there as of April 1, 2020. This includes anyone—related or unrelated to you—who lives and sleeps at your home most of the time. Please be sure to count roommates, young children, newborns, and anyone who is renting a space in your home. If someone is staying in your home on April 1 and has no usual home elsewhere, you should count them in your response to the 2020 Census.
