In mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. See https://2020census.gov/en/important-dates.html to know the important dates of the census.
Why is it so important? When you respond to the census, you help the community get its fair share of the nearly $700 billion per year in federal funds spent on schools, hospitals, roads, public works and other vital programs. Federal funds, grants and support to states, counties and communities are based on population totals and breakdowns by sex, age, race and other factors. The North Miami community benefits the most when the census counts everyone. Be counted.
