The 2020 Census is underway and households across America are responding every day.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. Census Bureau has adjusted 2020 Census operations in order to:

• Protect the health and safety of Census Bureau employees and the American public.
• Implement guidance from federal, state, and local health authorities.
• Ensure a complete and accurate count of all communities.

This table summarizes the adjustments to operations. Should any additional adjustment become necessary, the Census Bureau will promptly publish the change in an updated document.

Are you curious about how many people in your community are responding to the 2020 Census? Stay up to date with a map of self-response rates from across the United States. Find out here.

CoServ sets up relief fund to help Members and Customers

Our hearts go out to all North Texans who are suffering from COVID-19 and the financial hardships resulting from the shutdown of so many businesses.

Many of our neighbors have lost their jobs and can’t cover everyday expenses. To help these residential Members and Customers during this challenging time, CoServ has established the CCF COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. (Note: This only applies to residential accounts; if you are a small business and need assistance, please visit  this special page  established by the U.S. Small Business Administration.) 

Working through the  CoServ Charitable Foundation  (CCF), CoServ has designated $200,000 to  seven social service agencies  to help provide financial assistance during this challenging time. Members and Customers financially affected by the pandemic are encouraged to contact one of the agencies listed below. The CoServ Charitable Foundation is an IRS-recognized 501(c)3 charity.
