The 2020 Census is here! Data collected in the census will inform the distribution of more than $700 billion in federal funds to states and communities each year for things like infrastructure, health care, and food assistance. It’s important that we all respond to shape the future of our communities.
On September 11, 2019, Mayor Stoner signed a City of Plantation Proclamation supporting a Plantation Census 2020 Complete Count Committee. The City kicked off the Census campaign in which all Plantation residents are invited to participate. Let’s make “#Plantation Count!”
It’s your turn to respond.
Since 1790, the U.S. Census Bureau has conducted a census every ten years to determine the number of people living in the United States, as required by the U.S. Constitution.
We need your help to achieve a complete count in Plantation for Census 2020. It is not only your civic duty and required by law, but your participation in the census affects the amount of funding your community receives, how your community plans for the future and your representation in government.
Let’s Make a Difference Together
Participating In The Census Is Easier Than Ever
There is still time to be counted. The City of Plantation NEEDS you to complete the 2020 Census. This will determine the funding levels from the federal, state and county governments to our City for the next ten years. We can’t afford to lose out on this money we so rightly deserve!
It’s fast and easy to complete. It only takes about 5 minutes. You can do it three different ways:
- ONLINE–You can complete it online by going to https://my2020census.gov/. You don’t need to have the 12-digit code that was sent out earlier, just put in your address.
- BY TELEPHONE-You can complete it by telephone by calling 1-844-330-2020. You can ask to speak to someone in over 50 languages-just ask when you call.
- BY MAIL-You can complete it by mail. The paper questionnaires are being mailed on April 8 through April 16 to those households whose response hasn’t been received by the US Census Bureau. Just complete the paper form and mail it back.
By law, the information cannot be shared with law enforcement, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or the Internal Revenue Service. Title 13 is clear that the data collected can only be used for statistical purposes and your privacy is protected. Personal information obtained cannot be disseminated for 72 years.
