Do You Need A Census Form?
(From our friends at the Census Bureau)
If you haven't received your Census form in the mail, you can call today and give your answers over the phone or request a form be sent to where you live. Please make the call to ensure you can mail it back in time to avoid a census taker coming to your door. Don't be left out of the count for your community. When you fill out and mail back your census form, you’re making a statement about what resources your community needs going forward.
Accurate data reflecting changes in the community are crucial in apportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and deciding how more than $400 billion per year is allocated for projects like new hospitals and schools. That's more than $4 trillion over a 10-year period for things like new roads and schools, and services like job training centers.
