The 2020 Census
The United States Census happens every ten years. You probably already knew that. But did you know that the coronavirus stimulus funds from the government are being allocated based on census data? Did you know that government funds for roads, bridges, and other infrastructure improvements are also allocated based on the census? Did you know that your representation in Atlanta, Montgomery, and in Washington is defined by the census? Did you also know that every citizen is required by law to complete it?
There are thousands of ways the census is important to your everyday life, and now is the time to be counted. It is quick. It is easy. And you can do it online. Simply follow the link below, enter your information, answer a few questions, and you’re done. No follow ups. No knocks at your door. No sharing of your personal information. That’s all it takes for you to make a difference in how our region grows and changes over the next ten years. So what are you waiting for? Let’s count you in!
