    "We partner with faith-based institutions and communities to get the word out about the importance of the 2020 Census," said Census Bureau Director Dr. Steven Dillingham. "Faith leaders play an integral role in the community. They are the trusted voices, and in some cases in the hardest to reach communities they are the most trusted voice."

    Participants of the 2020 Census Interfaith Summit included leaders from the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS) Center, the Catholic Health Association Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, the African Methodist Episcopal Church, the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, and other diverse religious traditions and practices and national and regional faith-based organizations and institutions. Continue Reading...

    About the 2020 Census

    The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. Census statistics are used to determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and to inform how billions of dollars in federal funds will be allocated by state, local, and federal lawmakers. 

    Most U.S. households will receive an invitation between March 12-20 with instructions on how to respond online, by phone, or by mail. More information is available on how the 2020 Census will invite everyone to respond.
