We are excited that we are partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau to support the 2020 Census. As a partner, we will be working to make sure our community is accurately represented in the upcoming decennial count.
Every 10 years, the United States counts everyone who lives in the country, from newborn babies to the oldest among us. It is important for everyone to complete the 2020 Census so that communities like yours can be accurately funded and represented.

The 2020 Census will influence community funding and congressional representation for the next decade. Information collected in the census will inform the allocation of more than $675 billion in federal funds for states and communities each year. That includes money for things like:
Beginning in mid-March 2020, you can respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail. Choose the option that is most comfortable for you. Large-print guides to the questionnaire are available upon request. From May – July 2020, census takers will visit households that have not yet responded. A census taker can assist if you need help completing your form.
Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe and secure. It's federal law.
Your answers can only be used to produce statistics, which help determine federal funding for things like food assistance, health care services, and Pell Grants. They cannot be used against you by any government agency or court in any way—not by the FBI, DHS, or ICE. The U.S. Census Bureau asks about race and ethnicity in the decennial census, but it does not collect information about religious affiliation. U.S. law prohibits the Census Bureau from requiring anyone to disclose their religious affiliation.
