Ricardo and Riece are busy making calls to Iron Triangle households, encouraging them to complete their Census and get counted. 500 calls and counting!
Why? Making sure everyone in our community gets counted is vitally important because it ensures Richmond gets federal funding, political representation, and accurate data for the next 10 years. Watch the videos to learn why they answered our call.
2020 Census Update
- More than 25% of our County has yet to be counted, translating to losing up to $6 billion in federal funding.
- Self response rates in the Iron Triangle and North Richmond are especially low.
- Census Bureau staff is sending reminder emails and knocking on doors of households that have yet to respond.
- Enumeration will end on September 30, one month earlier than planned.
What does this all mean? Now, more than ever, it is important to make sure everyone gets counted!
