Census 2020

The 2020 Census is here and everyone is strongly encouraged to participate.The census provides critical data that lawmakers, business owners, teachers, and many others use to provide daily services, products, and support for you and your community. Every year, billions of dollars in federal funding go to hospitals, fire departments, schools, roads, and other resources based on census data. The results of the census also determine the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they are used to draw congressional and state legislative districts. This is critically important this year in Minnesota.

The census only happens every ten years, so make sure you are counted! To learn more about the census in Minnesota: https://mn.gov/admin/2020-census/learn-about/

April 1st is US Census Day, and Promise Neighborhood invites you to attend an information event at the St. Cloud Great River Regional Library.
