The U.S. Census Bureau will stop counting residents in your municipality, and across the State and Nation, in less than four weeks. This year’s – this decade’s – truncated schedule for in-person contact will end on September 30. Those not counted by that date will not count for the next 10 years, for things like Congressional districting, State Legislative redistricting, qualifying your municipality for a host of federal aid programs, and getting for all your residents all the help they deserve.
We urge you to, please, remind your citizens, friends, family members, co-workers, and neighbors to respond to the 2020 Census. Time is running out! Everyone who lived in the United States on April 1, 2020, is required to be counted.
The time to act is now. The Bureau will continue to accept on-line responses at 2020census.gov, until the end of this month.
Where there are more people, there are more needs—for schools, roads, and services for families, older adults, and children. Communities will miss out on funding for critical public services for the next 10 years unless everyone is counted. Every response matters!
