Time's Running Out: Complete the 2020 Census before 9/30

The 2020 Census is ending on September 30 and it is critical that all New Yorkers are counted. Filling out the census has never been more important. The census determines how the federal government allocates hundreds of billions of dollars every year to states and cities for important programs and services we all rely on, including education, housing, transportation, and even health care.

The Census is easy, safe, and confidential. It can be completed online or by phone; it's just 10 simple questions that can be answered in under 10 minutes. There are no questions about immigration, citizenship, criminal history, or income. Don't delay, take a few minutes to secure New York City’s future by visiting or calling 844-330-2020 to complete your census.
