What is the 2020 Census?
Every 10 years, the U.S. counts every person within its borders. Census data collected guides lawmakers in determining how to distribute billions in federal funding to communities across the U.S. — funding for schools, roads, health care and other programs.

Federal funding is allocated to each city/county based on what it reports as its population. Help the City of Dallas help YOU by accurately filling out and returning the census form.
Being counted in the census takes minutes, but the benefits last a decade. Stand up, fill out the form and be counted!
