Census Day 2020: April 1
Once a decade, America comes together to count every resident in the United States, creating national awareness of the importance of the census and its valuable statistics.
It counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting education, fire and emergency response services, transportation, employment, housing, health care and public policy.
By April 1, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.
Your local County Farm Bureau will serve as a Census Access Center by providing a space to complete the survey online via an iPad for households that have difficulty with reliable internet access.
