Census Notices Going Out — RI Foundation $upports The Count

Look, there’s even a Tagalog hotline. There’s no excuse for not participating. And thanks to the Rhode Island Foundation — this time for awarding $300,000 in grants to community groups for outreach aimed at getting people counted in the 2020 Census — we will hopefully secure our second Congressional seat and the roughly $3.8 billion a year the state receives for schools, health care, housing, roads, and more.

The U.S. Census Bureau has started mailing out their notices (these are not forms). I received mine yesterday and it took me 7 minutes from logging on to completion. Granted, my situation is as simple as it could possibly be. The more people in your household, the longer it will take.

The notices each include your “Census ID” which is specific to your address. Go online, enter that 12-digit ID, and start answering the questions. The layout is simple and clear, and the instructions are easy to follow.

With this second round of grants, the Rhode Island Census 2020 Fund has awarded nearly $600,000 in funding to encourage members of traditionally under-counted populations to participate in the 2020 Census.
