Census 2020 is Coming

April 1, 2020 is an important date—Census Day, 2020. Every ten years, the federal government is required to count every person living in the United States. The 2020 Census is important for you, your family, and your community. The information collected by the census will help City of Folsom and Sacramento County residents ensure our fair share of funding for important programs for our children, schools, health centers, senior citizens, affordable housing, roadways and more. The census provides important data for planning our communities and our elected representation. The 2020 Census will offer the new option to fill out the questionnaire online, as well as by phone, mail, or in-person. It is also available in 13 languages, and there are community-based organizations ready to assist or answer questions. The first mailings of the 2020 Census will be distributed in mid-March. By the first week of April, households should receive a letter or postcard about how to complete the Census questionnaire. Reminder postcards will be sent in late April and in May, in-person Census workers will visit homes that have not yet completed the questionnaire. For more information, visit www.saccensus.net.
