2020 Census Completion Deadline Is Now Sept 30th
U.S. Census Bureau recently announced
that the deadline for 2020 Census completion
is now September 30th, 2020. The
change moves the Census completion
deadline UP from October 31st, a full thirty-
one days sooner. It is now more urgent
than ever to talk with your friends, neighbors
and families about the importance of
taking the Census.
The Census counts every person living in
the United States and five U.S. territories.
The Census occurs once every 10 years and
determines how billions of federal dollars
are allocated to communities that US citizens
directly and indirectly benefit from,
such as funding for schools, roads and infrastructure.
Response rates for the City of Euclid, as of August 30, 2020,
currently stand at 61%. We would like to encourage
our entire community to talk with your
neighbors, friends and family members
about the many ways you can respond to
the Census and even assist those who need
help doing so.
You can take the Census online by visiting
your smartphone or desktop. The site does
not save your data, so it is safe and private
to assist others in taking the Census this
You can also take the Census over the
phone by calling 844-330-2020. Share this
phone number with those who do not have
internet access or who are uncomfortable
with taking the Census online.
Finally, the Census can be completed
by mail. The U.S. Census Bureau mailed
paper questionnaires to homes mid-April
with instructions on how to respond. If you
have lost or misplaced your questionnaire,
please respond to the Census online or by
phone with the number above.
