[ARCHIVED] County Residents Receiving Invites to Respond to 2020 Census

Census 2020 Contra Costa_NEWS_FLASH

Starting now, Contra Costa County residents will begin receiving invitations to participate in the 2020 Census from the U.S. Census Bureau. Mandated by the U.S. Constitution, the Census determines how billions of dollars of federal funding are distributed to each state every year for education resources, affordable housing programs, nutrition and health care services. Participating in the Census can help ensure Californians’ voices are heard in Sacramento and Washington, D.C.

The invitation includes information on how to fill out the Census form and will include a unique Census ID linked to a physical address. You are encouraged to use your Census ID to fill out the form, but it isn’t necessary to be counted. Every Californian can now respond to the Census online at https://my2020census.gov and by phone by calling the numbers available below.

The invitations sent out today are the first notices Californians will receive by mail from the U.S. Census Bureau to encourage participation in the Census. Two additional reminders will be sent before Census enumerators will begin going door to door visiting homes that have not responded.

As of March 12, all lines will begin live customer service representative support providing information about the 2020 Census and assistance with the questionnaire. Support on all language lines will end on July 31, 2020.
