Fill out the 2020 Census to support education funding

Respond to the 2020 Census today at my2020census.gov. It only takes minutes, and it matters.

This nationwide count will affect how funds go to states and communities for the next 10 years. Your child's school depends on these funds for classroom technology, teacher training, after-school programs, special education, school lunch assistance, and more.

Be sure to count everyone in your household, including all children, when you respond. Invite your children to observe, to teach them about their civic duty!
