Every 10 years, the U.S. Census Bureau undertakes a mammoth task: counting all the people residing in the United States. This count affects the allocation of funding for a community’s public resources (e.g., roads, hospitals,schools), how to plan for the future, and the communities voice in government. However many times ethnic minority communities are typically under-counted and overburdened. This upcoming census is one of the most important opportunities to ensure that the communities you care about are counted.
To help partners effectively engage their communities, the U.S. Census Bureau offers materials about the 2020 Census that can be shared with the public and provides resources that explain what partners can do to contribute.
