Mark your calendars. The 2020 Census begins April 1st, 2020.
US. Census Bureau data determines:
- How billions of federal dollars are distributed each year
- How many seats are awarded to each state in the House of Representatives
Your participation in the census will shape Gilbert's future. Invitations to participate in the 2020 Census will be mailed by April 1st, 2020.
Residents can respond in one of three ways:
- By phone
- By mail
The information collected by the U.S. Census Bureau is safe and protected and will help ensure Gilbert gets its fair share of federal funding.
For every Arizonan counted, the state receives $2,959 for schools, roads, emergency services, hospitals and other federally-funded projects and programs.
We get one chance every ten years to get this right. Help us make it count by participating in April 2020! #2020Census #iCount2020
