Only Two More Weeks Left to Complete the 2020 Census
The 2020 Census is ending on September 30 and
it is critical that all New Yorkers are counted. New
York City stands to lose billions of dollars in
federal aid every single year for schools,
hospitals, health clinics, affordable housing,
transportation, and more, as well as our
representation in Congress and in Albany if we do
not achieve a complete count.
This year, filling out the census is easier than ever. The census asks just 10 simple questions that can
be answered in just a few minutes online at my2020census.gov,
or by calling 844-330-2020. The census is
100% confidential, safe, and easy.
