More than 90 million households have already responded to the 2020 Census, but we are still missing critical voices. Has your voice been heard? If not, there’s still time to respond and to help make sure your community doesn’t miss out. Where there are more people, there are more needs. We have to make sure you and everyone in your community is counted.
Will health care and education be important to you in three years? In nine years? Your community risks getting less funding every year for the next 10 years, if you don’t respond to the 2020 Census now. This means you could lose benefits you already have. Make sure you and those living with you are not left out. Visit 2020census.gov to respond now.
The COVID-19 Relief Program is aware that some of our members received an application in the mail after they may have already applied.

If you received an application and you already applied, please disregard the additional application that you received. Thank you and we sincerely apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
