The Census began on April 1st. When each person in every household is counted, California will get its fair share of federal funding for local Central Valley schools, health care providers, safe drinking water, rural fire departments, roads, food pantries, senior, veteran, and disabled housing, universities, homelessness resources, and more.
Right now, our community is trailing behind other parts of California and the United States. It's critical that rural areas like ours are counted. CLICK ON THE IMAGE ABOVE TO COMPLETE A CENSUS.
