What Everyone Needs to Know

The 2020 Census is here and your participation is important! By responding to the Census, you make sure our communities get their fair share of billions of dollars in funding for health care, schools, transportation, roads, public safety, and much more. In 2016, Minnesota received $15,459,175,947 through 55 federal spending programs guided by data derived from the 2010 Census. 

In March, you should’ve received an invitation in the mail to respond online to the 2020 Census. A reminder letter and paper questionnaire was sent April 8-16. During the week of April 20-27, a final reminder postcard will be sent before the Census begins following up in person. Learn what to expect in the mail [PDF].
