The Constitution requires that every ten years, every U.S. resident is counted through the decennial census, regardless of their citizenship status.
The results of this count directly affect how $675 billion in federal funding is invested in our local communities, including money for public schools, roads, hospitals, and healthcare centers. It is a critical part of our democracy, and it’s important that everyone gets counted.
Filling out the Census is easy, takes less than ten minutes, and completely confidential.
