Every ten years, the United States Census Bureau conducts a sweeping survey of all U.S. households. The crucial demographic data documented in the survey has a far-reaching impact on how the federal government distributes resources to our communities, ranging from Medicaid and food stamp funding to infrastructure investment and even the size of your state’s congressional delegation.
Take five minutes today to do your part and fill out the 2020 Census online, over the phone or by mail using the information on the postcard you should have received in your mailbox by April 1. Visit my2020census.gov for more information on how to fill out the short form with big implications.
