April 1 is Census Day, when questionnaires received by every household in America capture the “snapshot of America” and are submitted to the U.S. Census. It’s quick and easy–only 10 questions–but its impact is very important! It’s safe, simple, and the information you submit is confidential.
The Census, required every 10 years by the U.S. Constitution, helps determine the distribution of more than $300 billion annually in funding for critical community services, including for social services. For every person not counted, roughly $12,000 could be lost over 10 years in the community!
So please remember to fill out and return the 2010 Census form when it arrives in your mailbox, beginning in March. It’s in our hands!
