The Trump Administration has shortened the time period for a Census count to take place by 30 days. The 2020 Census count will end September 30, 2020.
As you know, funding is determined by population count and that population count will be key as to where federal dollars will be allocated.
Covid-19 has greatly hampered the Census person-to-person contact efforts and this fact makes it even more urgent to get the word out about the new Census deadline.
The Census is confidential, and will not ask about employment, banking, citizenship status or any past or present law enforcement related questions. Be assured that all information is confidential.
Almost every area of our daily lives is touched by the Census -- education, housing, food, healthcare, foster care, as well as infrastructure, are just a few to be named.
