2020 ConnectHomeUSA - The 2020 Census
January 28, 2020 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST
The 2020 Census is coming. Learn how you can shape your community's future!
The 2020 Census is a count of every person living in the United States. Conducted once every 10 years, the Census is mandated by the Constitution and conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Each home will receive an invitation to respond to a short questionnaire - online, by phone, or by mail. The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, nonprofits, teachers, and many others use to shape a community's future.
Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding goes to hospitals, fire departments, Head Start, schools, SNAP, housing programs, community and economic development, roads, and other resources based on census data.
Join this webinar to learn more from a 2020 Census expert, including how you can help support a full and accurate count!
