Remember – Your Census response is critical to Maryland’s funding

The 2020 Census is underway, and we want every Marylander to have their voice heard. The 2020 Census deadline has been extended, send in your response now! Click here to be counted, do not delay.

The census is conducted every ten years and helps shape important decisions for the decade to come. Census results help determine how much Maryland receives in federal funding for:

  • Healthcare including vaccines and emergency services
  • Schools, new roads and highways  
  • Small business recovery assistance
  • Helping families in need, including school lunch programs

Did you know it is estimated that every Marylander counted in the census equates to almost $20,000 in federal funding over 10 years? Taking the census ensures your community receives its fair share of federal funding.
