Census 2020- What You Need To Know

Census Day is April 1, 2020

What is the census?

Every 10 years, everyone in the country is counted as part of the census.  It’s important for every person to be counted as the results can affect how much money state and local governments get for Medicaid, housing vouchers, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and educational programs.  When there isn’t enough money, services and programs for people with disabilities can be cut.
