Get the basics on this 9-question confidential survey that takes 10 minutes to complete. It determines where and how federal money and power are distributed. When you fill out the Census, each person in your household (including you) brings $20,000 into your community over the next ten years for affordable housing, healthy food, healthcare, public schools, foster care, free meals, job training, essential emergency services, roads, preschools, and more.

From March 12 – October 31, 2020 set up a Census Hub in your organization, business, school, or apartment building and invite your community to come safely take the 2020 Census.

You’ll need: 

An internet-enabled computer or tablet set to 2020Census.gov

Signage that lets people know they should COME TO YOUR CENSUS at your location, which you can download HERE

Let OCEIA know you’ll be hosting a 2020 Census hub—and if you’ll be offering any in-person or multilingual translation support, so they can feature you on the San Francisco Census Help Center map
