2020 Census Is Still Underway!

 

Every 10 years the Constitution mandates the United States to count its population.  2020 is the year the Census count is occurring throughout the country.  Everyone will be counted where they are living as of 04/01/2020 and the data will be used to fund our communities.

The National Association of Black Social Workers continues to update you about the 2020 Census and the adjustments due to COVID-19.  Due to the COVID-19 emergency, the Census Bureau has adjusted some of their operations to protect the health and safety of the public and their staff. 

The Census Bureau will continue the population count.  This means if you have not completed your 2020 Census questionnaire, you still have time. 

You may complete the Census questionnaire online, by telephone or via mail.  

It is important to note that prior timelines for completing Census forms have changed.  The following timeline changes are reflected below:

 

March 12-October 31, 2020-Self Response Phase- responses are to be submitted online, by phone or via mail.

June 13-July 9, 2020-Census takers will drop off invitations to respond and paper questionnaires at the front doors of 5 million households stateside while updating the addresses.

August 11-October 31, 2020-Non-Response Follow-up- Census takers will interview households in person.

April 30-July 31, 2021- Census Bureau will deliver the local Census counts from each state to the president and Congress.  This information is used to complete legislative redistricting and to determine the number of seats in the House of Representatives.

 

The Census data provides federal funding for more than 100 programs in the Black communities, such as school lunches, highway construction, education, Medicaid, mental health services, etc.  Let us ensure our communities receive our fair share of the federal funding by completion of the 2020 Census questionnaire.

Please contact the Census Bureau at: My2020 Census. gov. or at (844) 330-2020 for further information.   

 

LET’S ALL BE COUNTED!
