Census 2020
What to expect in the mail
This is it! It's time! Census 2020 comes calling in March! $675 billion in federal funds are at stake... money spent on roads, schools, hospitals and so much more.

Businesses use census data to determine where to open, local governments use it for public safety issues, and developers use the census to build new homes and revitalize aging neighborhoods.

It is your civic duty to fill out the census once every ten years as mandated by the U.S. Constitution.

And, for the first time, you will be able to fill out the census online.

The first census materials should arrive at your home around March 12, followed by reminders and ultimately, a home visit if you do not respond. For more information about Census 2020, watch the videos or click on the banner below:
