Your Response Matters

The 2020 Census will provide a snapshot of our nation – our population, where we live, and so much more. Census results help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding flow into states and communities each year. Health clinics. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The census can shape many different aspects of our community.  The results even determine how many seats in Congress each state gets.
