Thursday, October 15 marks the last day you can fill out your 2020 Census. The Census is important to help make sure you that your city receives appropriate funding for important projects for the next ten years.
According to 2020Census.gov, "The results of the 2020 Census will help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding flow into communities every year for the next decade. That funding shapes many different aspects of every community, no matter the size, no matter the location."
