Guess what? The 2020 Census is here and it’s time for everyone living in the United States to be counted! Many ask “WHY?” and “What is the Census?” Well let me tell you: The census is done every 10 years. It’s is a population count of everyone living in the United States. Census data is used for decision making at all levels of the government; drawing federal, state, and local legislative districts and determining seats in Congress. It is important because an accurate count of everyone in the US is needed to distribute over 675 Billion annually in federal funds. Please go to 2020census.gov to complete the questionnaire online, by phone, or by mail. Our communities depend on these funds that’s why it is so important and you see messaging everywhere you look!
