Why It Matters
Hospitals. Fire departments. Schools. Even roads and highways. The
census can shape many different aspects of your community. Each year,
the results help determine how more than $675 billion in federal funding
is distributed to states and communities.
By April 2020, households will receive an invitation to participate in
the census. You’ll then have three options to respond: online, by phone,
or by mail. We’ll mark Census Day on April 1, 2020, with events across
the country. This is a key date for the 2020 count: When completing the
census, you’ll note where you are living on April 1.
