[ARCHIVED] Reminder to Residents to Respond to the 2020 Census

2020 Census Flyer

The City of Homestead is reminding residents there is still time to fill out the 2020 Census.  As of August 10, 2020, only 54% of households have responded.

The Census matters because it will determine how billions of dollars in federal funding are distributed all across America to cities just like Homestead. The funds that the City of Homestead receives from the federal government as a result of this process can go toward public services and infrastructure projects that are crucial to our growing city. The Census affects funding to not only cities but also to hospitals, fire departments, schools and many other local programs and services. The Census even determines how many seats Florida will have in the United States House of Representatives as well as how congressional and state legislative districts are drawn.  

All Census responses are confidential and secure.  It is illegal for a census taker to publish any information that identifies an individual or a business. Census Bureau representatives take a lifelong pledge to always handle your confidential data responsibly, and they must keep your information private or be subject to penalties for wrongful disclosure that include harsh fines and/or imprisonment.  Please note that the Census Bureau emphasizes that no law enforcement agency (not the DHS, ICE, FBI, or CIA) can access or use your personal information at any time. Data collected can only be used for statistical purposes that help inform important decisions, including how much federal funding your community receives.
