CENSUS 2020 – RESPOND NOW
Census Postcard/Notices were mailed in March to Street Addresses requesting on-line responses from households across the country. If you have a Post Office Box, you will NOT receive the notice, but you can still complete the census on-line by logging into www.2020census.gov and follow the directions. Response can also be completed by telephone if computer is not available at 1-844-330-2020 (Census Information Sheet). Questionnaires will be mailed later in April that can be returned by mail upon completion. ALL responses are confidential as required by federal law. Kalama receives some of their revenues from state and federal sources based on its population, so your response is very important. Responding Without Census ID
Every 10 years, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone living in the United States. Data from the census provide the basis for distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds every year to communities including KALAMA across the country. These funds support vital programs including housing, education, health care, transportation, employment and public policy.
The City of Kalama encourages all the citizens to respond to the census in whichever way works best for them as it connects the city to vital revenue sources needed for the community.
