2020 Census

Every 10 years the U.S. Census Bureau counts the number of people living in the United States and U.S. territories. Starting this month, each home will receive information regarding how to complete the 2020 Census. Because funding is tied to census data, it is extremely important that every household complete the census to ensure schools and other entities receive accurate funding.
