Make Sure You Are Counted In The National Census

n4a – The 2020 Census is well underway and more and more households across America are responding every day. Even in these trying times, it is important to help ensure that older adults in your community are counted. Data collection now ends on September 30—a month earlier than previously reported due to a Trump Administration decision. It’s not too late to encourage older adults in your community to complete the census—online, by phone or by mail.

Responses to the 2020 Census are factored into a tremendous number of policy actions and funding formulas (including Older Americans Act), at the federal, state and local levels, so it’s important that everyone living in the U.S. is counted. Census response also shapes decisions about how public funds are spent on schools, fire and emergency services and health care for your community. We encourage all Missourians to take action to ensure that the older adults and caregivers you serve will be counted.
