Children Count Too

April 1 was Census Day. That’s the day that you are counted as living in the United States. But that doesn’t mean that you missed your chance to be counted.

As of May 3, only about 57 percent of the US population has completed their Census forms.

But we need everyone to be counted. The US Census Bureau is still asking you to fill out your census form. It’s time.

You count. Your children also count. So… remember to include your children, including newborns born on or before April 1, when you fill out your Census form.

As the Census Borough states, not only do your responses help us adults, it also helps the kids:

Census results affect planning and funding for education—including programs such as Head Start, Pell Grants, school lunches, rural education, adult education, and grants for preschool special education.

By each of us completing our forms, both my community and your community can get the federal funds necessary to help keep our schools and community vibrant. FYI, for every person listed, your community will receive an estimated $2,600 per year per person for the next ten years from the US Treasury.

You can complete your census form online at http://my2020Census.gov, by phone at 844-330-2020, or by mail.

Thank you, once again.
