Have you filled out the Census? Did you know that the #2020Census happens every ten years, and it’s the only way for our Federal government to count our residents so they can allocate much needed federal funding to Oregon state to support our community programs, such as: libraries, hospitals, senior care, pre-K funding, school lunches, and more. During this pandemic, while you are safe at home, you can respond to the 2020 Census right now, online, over the phone, or by mail. As of the end of April, Benton County has around a 63% response rate and Linn County a 59% response rate. Let's go Oregon! Respond online now: www.2020census.gov#censusfacts
