The U.S. Census population count that takes place every 10 years is an important way to make sure our voices are heard in Congress and that we receive our share of federal health, housing, education and transportation funding.

Between March 12 and March 20, households across the country are scheduled to begin receiving U.S. Census Bureau mail with instructions on how to complete the 2020 Census questionnaire online, by phone or by mail.

Please participate by completing the questionnaire. From May through July, Census workers will visit households that haven’t responded to the 2020 Census to help ensure a complete count.
