Once a decade, America comes together to participate in the Census. The U.S. Constitution mandates that a census be taken every 10 years to count all people—both citizens and non-citizens—living in the United States.
The 2020 Census begins this March.
Participating in the Census is in everyone’s best interest because the information is used to reappoint Congressional seats, redistrict, and distribute over $15.5 billion in federal funding to support Minnesota and our community’s vital programs.
To make sure our community is fairly counted, we need your participation in the upcoming 2020 Census. So what is the Census and why should I be counted?
