Census Day 2020

Census Day 2020 is observed nationwide on April 1, 2020.  By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.  Everyone living in the 50 states, District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories (Puerto Rico, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands) is required by law to be counted in the 2020 Census.   The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, prodcuts, and support for you and your community.  Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data.  Residents questions or concerns can be addressed by calling 800-923-8282 or go to
