The Census happens every 10 years and is the only official population count in the U.S.
When you fill out the Census form and count everyone at your address, you help decide how much money our community will receive for the next 10 years.
Remember, when it comes to the Census, everyone counts. Count ALL children living at your address. Don’t forget to include babies born on or before April 1, 2020, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, foster children, and people not related to you, like a friend and his/her child, if they are living with you on April 1, 2020.
Filling out the Census form for your address is easy. You can respond to the Census online or by phone in English, Spanish, or 11 other languages. You can even do it on your smartphone! Visit 2020census.gov for more information.
· Our child care and health centers get more funding during the next 10 years to help the families stay healthy and thrive.
· Our community also gets more funding for programs like CalFresh, WIC, Medi-Cal, and SCHIP for the next decade so families can get the medical care and food assistance they need to be healthy.
