2020 Census Information for Service Providers

The U.S. National Census Day, the reference day used for the census, will be April 1, 2020. From mid-March, homes across the country will begin receiving invitations to complete the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, individuals should respond for their home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail.

The 2020 Census website has information concerning important dates and the general timeline of the 2020 Census.

Additionally, representatives from the Census Bureau presented helpful information for service providers at the CoC meeting on February 13, 2020, concerning counting sheltered and unsheltered homeless for the 2020 Census.
