Census 2020

It’s not too late to respond to the 2020 Census.  The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide services, products, planning, and support for you and our community. Every year, $675 billion in federal funding goes to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. It is estimated that each Census response impacts local funding by approximately $18,000 over the course of 10 years.  Take 10 minutes today to complete the Census online at www.2020census.gov or by phone 800-923-8282.  Your action today helps shape Waterford’s future for the next 10 years.
