Ensure our community gets its fair share of federal funds and representation in Congress

The census serves as the basis for distributing $675 billion in federal assistance for schools, hospitals, fire departments, roads, early education and health programs, and so much more.

  • It's important: The census helps determine where to build new schools, hospitals and businesses, the distribution of federal dollars and how seats in Congress are apportioned.
  • It's confidential: Your responses are protected by federal law. No law enforcement agency can access or use your personal information.*
  • It's easy: In March 2020, you will receive an invitation from the Census Bureau by mail. For the first time ever, you will be able to respond online. Those who prefer, can respond by phone or by mail. Visit to learn more and to respond on behalf of your household on April 1, 2020.
