2020 Census Day

Today is Census Day!

Now more than ever, it’s important to respond to the #2020Census and help shape the future of your community.

Respond online at  2020CENSUS.GOV

According to the U.S. Census Bureau: 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.

Think of your morning commute: Census results influence highway planning and construction, as well as grants for buses, subways, and other public transit systems.

Census results affect planning and funding for infrastructure—including programs for highway planning and construction, Section 8 housing, federal transit, community development, and rural water and waste disposal systems.

Make sure your employees, customers, partners, friends, family and social networks know about the importance of responding to the census. Responding now will minimize the need to send census takers out into communities to follow up.

As of today, more than 36 percent of households across the country have already responded to the 2020 Census, but there is more work to do. Check out the Census Bureau’s Response Rates Map to see how your community is doing.
