[ARCHIVED] Census 2020 Deadline is Coming. Don’t Wait. Take the Census Survey!

Census 2020 Contra Costa_NEWS_FLASH

It is not too late to respond to the Census. The Census deadline is now through September 30, 2020. Contra Costa County residents received invitations in March 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.

If you have not replied yet, Census Enumerators started canvassing door-to-door on August 11. Although our County and state have Shelter-in-Place Orders due to COVID-19, it has never been easier to respond to the Census from the comfort and safety of your own home. Every Contra Costa resident can respond to the Census online at https://my2020census.gov and by phone. The U.S. Census Bureau encourages the use of your Census ID to fill out the form, but it is not necessary to be counted. Live customer service is available in 13 languages.

“The stakes are incredibly high, as the recent COVID-19 pandemic has shown how important federal funding and representation in our government can be for our County,” said Board Chair, Candace Andersen. “From day one, our focus and the key to ensuring a complete count has been to reach the hard-to-count populations in Contra Costa County. Everyone counts.”

As of March 12, all lines have live customer service representative support providing information about the 2020 Census and assistance with the questionnaire. Support on all language lines will end on September 30, 2020.
