Have You Filled Out Your Census?It has never been easier to respond to the census. Your household should have received an invitation in the mail to respond to the 2020 Census in mid-March. For the first time in our country’s history, you are able to respond by phone or online. You can also still respond by mail if you prefer.
You can complete the census now by calling 844-330-2020 or by clicking here.
The 2020 Census is Critical
An accurate census count is essential for Texas’ future. The count informs how more than a trillion dollars in federal funding will be distributed for programs that improve our communities – like health funding, veterans’ programs, and schools.
And not only is census data used to determine federal funding for government services, businesses also use it to decide where to invest and create jobs.
It also determines how many representatives we send to Congress.
You can make a difference in our community by participating in the 2020 Census. It only takes a few minutes, but the impact will be felt for the next decade.
Language AvailabilityThe census is available in 12 different languages.
There are also 59 non-English language guides and videos (plus American Sign Language) available on 2020census.gov ensuring you can respond in your preferred language.
Census and COVID-19As with all things across our region and the country, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken over much of the discussion for how we are moving forward in the face of this challenge.
Census 2020 is no different, but it remains as vital as ever that we encourage everybody we know to be counted.
At the federal level, the U.S. Census Bureau is carefully monitoring the coronavirus situation, following the guidance of federal, state, and local authorities. They have adjusted their field operations to ensure the health and safety of our communities, while also working to fulfill the Constitutional requirement to complete the 2020 Census.
As we Stay Home, Work Safe, we can also do our Constitutional duty of filling out the census at home.
