2020 Census: The Power of 10

10 minutes, 10 questions, 10 years of impact
You probably already know that the Census is only 10 questions and takes about 10 minutes to complete. But did you know that your response will have an impact over the next 10 years?
The 2020 Census data will influence how federal funding flows into your community over the next decade.
What is at risk if I don’t respond?
Each person who doesn’t respond to the Census represents a loss of nearly $20,000 in funds that could have gone to your local schools, healthcare services, such as Medicare and Medicaid, first responders, roads, and parks, according to the Maryland Department of Planning.
It’s never been easier to make a lasting positive impact on your community. There are 3 ways to respond:
