Census Safety

Census information helps secure Federal funding for our schools, our roads, our hospitals, and our libraries. This money is distributed based on how many people live in an area. If our community is under-counted, our community may be underfunded.

One of the ways to make sure you and your family are counted is to answer the door when a Census Worker stops at your home. Use the following chart to determine if the Census Worker is real. Your information will remain confidential whether or not you are a citizen of the United States.

You matter, and so does your count.

If you haven’t yet filled out your Census Form for 2020, you still have time to get counted.

P.S. Please share widely and personally to connect with as many individuals as you can. These Census numbers will impact our community funding for the next ten years.
