People across America are keeping their families and communities safe and healthy by staying home or serving the public by providing essential services. Responding to the census yourself – is another way to do your part and help keep your community strong. Many communities the census has historically missed, like newcomers and immigrants, are hit especially hard when there’s a crisis. A full census count can help protect our families, friends, and neighbors. Many of the resources we rely on in the wake of coronavirus due to illness, job loss, or ongoing need are determined by census data, including:

  • Health Care: Medicaid, Medicare, Child Health Insurance Program, hospital funding
  • Workforce Assistance: unemployment insurance, aid for dislocated workers
  • Food Assistance: Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children
  • Disability Services
  • Senior Services
