THE 2020 CENSUS IS COMING
WHAT? The Constitution requires we count everyone, wherever they are living on April 1, every ten years.
WHEN? Between March 12 and March 20 households will receive instructions on how to fill out the census by phone, mail or online.
SO? The census determines the number of representatives Florida gets in Congress as well as how the districts are drawn.
It also determines the amount of funding we get from DC for schools and colleges as well as important assistance programs like SNAP, School lunch, Medicaid and more.
That’s the amount of federal money that our area lost out on this decade because not all census forms were filled out in 2010, the last census!
BE SURE TO BE COUNTED!
The Census Bureau needs to know where you live as of April 1. So even college students need to fill it out, rather than their parents.
