Jamey Helgeson: Still time to take part in census

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many things in our world over the past few months, including the timeline for our 2020 census.

The census is a survey that counts all of the people who live in the United States. This is important because it helps decide how much funding is needed for important programs, services, and public works.

The new deadline – Sept. 30 – means that it is critically important to take the census NOW. We need to make sure as many people are counted as possible.

Check out this resource from 2020 Census Counts: https://bit.ly/3kakaVH. It has more information about why the census matters to people with disabilities.
