Filling out the census is more important than ever

It may not seem important to think about filing your Census form in the midst of a global pandemic, but it's times like these that make Census data so incredibly vital.  The federal government uses the census to determine how to distribute billions of dollars to communities and it determines how many seats in Congress each state gets.  By filling out the census you are helping bring dollars to our community and make sure that we are fully represented in Congress. It takes only 10 minutes to complete and your information is completely confidential.  If you have any questions about the census you can find information here or contact our chat service and our staff will be happy to assist you.
