It’s Not Too Late To Complete The 2020 Census

If you haven’t completed the 2020 Census yet, you can still respond online, by phone, or by mail. If a census taker comes to your home, please cooperate.

Census results shape the future of communities. It’s estimated that a mere 1 percent undercount could cost Texas $300 million in federal funding a year, which represents dollars that won’t be available for our region to fund transportation, public health, education, and other services. As of Thursday, there are still about 15 percent of Texas households that have not been counted.

You can fill out the survey online at 2020census.gov, call 1-844-330-2020, or text “Respond Now” to 313131. When responding by mail, fill out the form with a blue or black pen or a #2 pencil, then mail it back in the pre-paid return envelope.

Please encourage others in your community to complete the 2020 Census. The deadline to respond is September 30.
