2020 Census: Make Sure You Count!

The 2020 Census has arrived, and your participation is extremely important. Census data directly affect how federal funds (out of a national total of $675 billion) are allocated to communities for the next 10 years. Allocation issues include the following much more:

  • Schools and Libraries
  • Roads and Highways
  • Public Health
  • Medicaid
  • Public Transportation
  • Neighborhood Improvements
  • Housing Assistance
  • SNAP and WIC
  • Community Service Grants

Additionally, Census data is used to determine the number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, and Illinois is in danger of losing 1-2 seats.

Good news – it will be easier than ever to participate in the Census. There are three ways to submit your Census form:

  • Online/computer or mobile app (first time ever for this option)
  • Phone
  • Paper

All households should receive an invitation in the mail between March 12-20 with instructions. Have questions? Check out the 2020 Census FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) prepared by our Staff. Also, if you need a computer to complete the form online, there are two dedicated laptops available for use in the Library. You can check one out at the downstairs info desk.
