YWCA Greater Pittsburgh passionately believes that EVERYONE COUNTS. Your participation in the 2020 Census is of crucial importance – an accurate count of each community and state allocates funding for many important areas, including emergency readiness.
It is time for us to make sure everyone in our community is counted and gets the resources they deserve. The census shapes everything from whether or not we have fair political representation in Congress to whether our roads, hospitals, schools, and fire departments have the funds they need.
The census is easy and safe to complete, and you can do so from the comfort of your own home. The U.S. Census Bureau is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation and will follow the guidance of federal, state and local health authorities.
The self-response phase of the census has been extended until October 31, 2020 – and the most important thing you can do is respond online, by phone, or by mail when you receive your invitation. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up.
