There’s a lot at stake in the 2020 Census. It determines how much funding our communities receive for food assistance, children’s health programs, free and reduced school meals, education programs and so much more. In fact, it’s estimated that our state will lose $1,800 per year for every person who isn’t counted! That’s why it’s essential that every single person, including infants and children, are counted this year.

There’s still time to be counted! Make sure to complete your census by Sept. 30!
