Have you heard about the 2020 Census? Census Day is April 1, 2020, but we are already spreading the word about how important the census is to Mecklenburg County.
Because the census brings valuable resources to our community, such as federal funding for things such as healthcare, education, and transportation.
The census is a count taken every 10 years of every person in the U.S. It’s convenient, safe, and required. In the weeks leading up to the Census Day, you will receive a letter in the mail from the census asking you to respond online. Don’t have a computer? That’s okay. You can participate by phone or request a paper copy.
*International students and students with special needs: Please note there will be online and phone options available in English and 12 other languages. Also, the census will make available print and video language guides in 59 languages, including American Sign Language, braille, and large print guides.
It only takes a few minutes to ensure your family is counted. Everyone counts – from newborns to senior citizens! To learn more, visit MeckCounts2020.com.
