    Have you completed the Federal 2020 Census?

    Every ten years, the federal government conducts a census, with a goal of counting every person living in the United States. The data collected ensures that our communities get fair representation in Congress and districts reflect the people who live in them. It also determines where billions of dollars in federal funding will go over the next decade. This funding supports things like healthcare, food and nutrition programs, education, childcare, and housing. As Boston continues to battle the COVID-19 crisis and works toward an equitable recovery, it’s more important than ever that everyone fills out the census so that we get the resources we need. Filling out the U.S. 2020 Census is an immediate action you can take to help with relief efforts from the safety of your home. It’s also an important way to stand up for social justice, fight for equity, and to help build the kind of city we want to see. Only 54% of Boston’s households have responded to date, with some areas and neighborhoods lagging significantly behind. This could severely skew Congressional representation, redistricting, and critical federal funding for Boston's communities during the next ten years. You can self-respond online (my2020census.gov), or by phone 844-330-2020; these services are available in 13 different languages. In the event you misplaced or never received your census ID, the guide linked below will explain how you can still respond without that piece of information. It takes just a few minutes and please remember, your responses are safe and confidential. You will not be asked about your immigration status, and your answers will not affect any public benefits you receive. Help make sure everyone gets counted!
