Communities benefit most when everyone responds to the 2020 Census

Results determine where billions of dollars are distributed each year for 10 years, informing funding decisions for critical public services, such as schools and education programs, health and emergency services, infrastructure, and other vital programs and services. Census data also determine the number of seats in Congress for each state, and inform boundaries for voting and legislative districts. People can still respond to the 2020 Census by visiting 2020census.gov, by phone or by mail.

“The diversity and breadth of submissions from across the nation are a reminder of what the 2020 Census is about -- it’s about real people from all walks of life being visible and ensuring that they have a brighter future. The Census -- and this competition -- are a true reflection of the diversity and spirit of the nation.”

- Mara Abrams, Founder & Co- Director, Census Open Innovation Labs
