Make sure YOU count in the 2020 U.S. Census! The census is a once-a-decade population count of everyone who lives in the United States on April 1st. Responses from the census help determine how hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funds are allocated for critical public services and programs in communities around the country each year for the next 10 years. Historically, people with disabilities are undercounted in the overall numbers which has real-life implications for programs and services for the disability community.
It's NOT too late to participate! Take action and respond to the census by one of three ways: Online (at 2020census.gov), by phone, or by filling out the paper form you received in the mail. If you didn't receive a paper form, and you don't have a Census ID for the address where you need to count yourself, you can use the online or phone response options without using an ID.
