2020 Census Graphic

What makes a small town is great is its community, and that’s why your response to the 2020 Census is so important. Census counts impact funding for things that keep us connected, like local roads, bridges, public transportation, and more. Approximately 55 federal grants and programs are impacted by the 2020 Census count. 

By April 1, 2020, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. You will have three options for responding: 1) online, 2) by phone 3) by mail. In mid-March, households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census.
