2020 Census - Stand up and be counted!
The 2020 Census is closer than you think and it is essential that everyone is counted.  The census counts every person living in the United States and every 10 years, the results of the census are used to reapportion the House of Representatives, determining how many seats each state gets.  Federal funds, grants, and support to states, counties, and communities are also based on census data.  These funds are spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works, and other vital programs. 
 
Completing the census is mandatory and it is a way to participate in our democracy and say "I COUNT!" The 2020 Census will be easier than ever to participate in as you will be able to respond to the census online.  See the links below for more information on the 2020 Census.
