  • The 2020 Census has been extended through October 31, 2020 Be Counted. Why is the Census important? The Census impacts your community: School lunches. Plans for highways. Funding for Food Pantries. Support for firefighters and families in need. Think of your morning commute: Census results influence highway planning and construction, as well as grants for buses, subways, and other public transit systems. Or think of your local schools: Census results help determine how money is allocated for the Head Start program and for grants that support teachers and special education. The list goes on, including programs to support rural areas, to restore wildlife, to prevent child abuse, to prepare for wildfires, and to provide housing assistance for older adults. LINK HERE
