Census day is April 1, 2020. This is Mesa’s once in a decade opportunity to make sure that everyone in our City of counted. For the first time ever, you can respond to the Census by internet, phone or by traditional mail.
Every person counted brings over $3,000 in state and federal funding to programs that support Mesa residents in sectors like public safety, roads, and healthcare. When members of our community don’t respond, that funding could go to other cites and states.
The Census also affects how many seats in the U.S. House of Representatives Arizona has and can affect representative districts.
