NOTE
 
Remember the Census!

 
When you complete your Census form, you bring your tax dollars back to our community to fund affordable housing, infrastructure, education, healthcare and more. For each of the past ten years California has received $1950 per resident in federal funds. Our California numbers will also determine our share of seats in the House of Representatives. Please complete your form so that we receive our share of federal dollars and representation!  Questions about the Census? Go to:  https://2020census.gov/en/what-is-2020-census.html
 
Call, text or email family, friends and those you work with to remind them to complete their Census form. ALL RESIDENTS (not just citizens) are required to complete their Census form.
Learn about how your identity is protected: (https://2020census.gov/en/data-protection.html).
