The 2020 Census is underway. You can keep tabs on how many households in your community have responded with this map of self-response rates from across the country.
Why does it matter? The census affects our community every day. The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location. The results will also determine congressional representation.
So if you if haven't been counted yet, please be sure to participate.
